Centre for Photography and Visual Culture

Post-Capitalist Photography Now!

The Photographers’ Gallery, London
Saturday 24 November, 10.30-18.00

pcIn dialogue with All I Know Is What’s On The Internet, this one-day symposium examines contemporary photography’s relationships to neoliberalism. 

Questions addressed include how do we make sense of photography’s relationship to corporate power? Do participatory photographic cultures serve the interests of global capital or provide potential sites for resistance? In what ways can we think about photography as work? And does computational culture extend, disrupt or intensify photography’s historical relationships to post-Fordist capitalism?

This event aims to address where photography might figure in efforts to challenge neoliberalism and bring alternative systems into view, and the roles of public institutions and the art world in such a context. Speakers including artists, photographers, philosophers, economists, organisers and theorists will explore the complex relationships between the production, circulation, and consumption of photography and the operations of global capitalism.

Participants include Nina Power, Ben Burbridge, Mike Cook, Taous R Dahmani, Andrew Dewdney, Constant Dullaart, Rowan Lear, Emily Rosamond, Harry Sanderson, Katrina Sluis and Kuba Szreder.

A collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery, Centre for Photography and Visual Culture, University of Sussex and The Centre for the Study of the Networked Image, London South Bank University.  

£15/£10 members & concessions. Ticket holders are able to access the gallery exhibitions on the same day.
