We will generate strategies that allow us to take useful and alternative positions before the images that we produce, consume or distribute. We will explore the resources available to us to stimulate the participants to establish a link with independent photography that is based on models and processes of different nature. It is structured in 2 work sessions in which a critical map of photography will be exposed and different exercises will be carried out with the intention of creating a common space for action and reflection around the projects of the participants.
Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd of October from 4pm to 8pm
Minimum of participants: 8
Maximum number of participants: 15
We cannot understand the development of photography if it is not through the exercise of representation: from the Latin re-prae-sentare, where it meant “to make present, in some sense, something that is literally not present”. Indeed, for some time now, we have been more stimulated to communicate metaphorically, we have perfected a multitude of visual resources to speak of our particular universe, of our own voice. The self-absorption of the representation has caused it to stop working as a mediation to become only an end, an exhausting cage from which it is difficult for us to escape.
Julián Barón (Castellón, 1978)
Photographer, teacher and promoter of projects that use the image as a social tool of thought. In approaching his projects, a permanent will is to raise perspectives capable of contributing to weakening the rigid collective imagination and questioning the official discourses that build memory, history and identity through image.
