Ghosts, Footprints and Scars is a theoretical-practical workshop that proposes to establish a dialogue on different operations related to visual production based on the reflection of the research and development processes of the artist Joel Jiménez.
Joel will share his work methodology, generating a map of relationships between different photographic and cinematographic projects he has carried out throughout his career, establishing partnerships with various media artists such as photography, cinema and poetry to activate a series of ‘ideas and concerns circulating around artistic practice.
In this process, a series of key concepts related to the sensory perception of space, constellations of images, the archive and the role of memory or speculation in the development of visual narratives will be discussed. .
Beyond a chronological review, the workshop proposes to understand our work as a fluid knowledge system that facilitates thinking about how we stand in front of the images that cross us.
In the second stage of the workshop, this exercise will be open to participants and their developing projects to propose reflection tools that activate new strategies for the continuation of the production or editing of their work.
