International Conference
THE LEFT CONFERENCE – PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM CRITICISM


Since the late nineteenth century, the printed photograph in the media stood as a powerful tool for denouncing social injustice and claiming better life conditions – i.e. as seen in the work of Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, or Joshua Benoliel, among many others. In the early decades of the twentieth century the use of images had a significant boost with film, when directors such as Flaherty, Eisenstein, John Grierson, Vertov, Dvorjenko or Ivens, combining documental intentions with avant-garde experimental claims, made possible to discuss political and historical conditions.

The aim of the conference is to discuss and debate photographs and film as a social tool from a leftist stance. In particular, to examine and explore the relation of documentary practices and political commitment in different historical circumstances throughout the twentieth and the twenty first centuries.

The seminar/conference together with a film projection program will take place at Contemporary Art Museum of Chiado in Lisbon on November 16-18 2017.

We invite paper submission of no more than 500 words abstract that focuses on photography and film related to:
• the creation of documentary as a social and political weapon;
• the soviet revolution as an experimental wave in photography, design and film;
• anticolonial and postcolonial imagery;
• women rights and feminist imagery;
• avant gardes and ideology claims;
• the role of images in the leftist movements;
• Contemporary art practices and social and political criticism;
• Alan Sekula legacy and the political commitment with images.
