Please join us!
This Thursday, September 18th at 4 PM
Bill Brand Screening Room (JLC120)

Because Walid is giving a public lecture at UMASS the day before (*see below), our event will be a less formal conversation with Walid, students and faculty.

To prime this conversation we shared three thoughts with Walid:

 

  • What if a century and a half of photography’s solidity as the baseline representational tool began to change? What would contemporary images look like then?” (c.f. Paul Rabinow)

 

  • The visual culture of violence

 

  • How your own practice has shifted and changed in response to new imaging technologies.

 

Also, the day before, at UMASS!
