Using Photographs: Forms of photographic communication in the 21st century

SUNDAY MARCH 28
11 am– 6 pm
Auditoriet, Moderna museet, Stockholm

The rapidly developing technologies of visual communication that have followed in the wake of the emergent digital cultures, as well as the quickly mutating and proliferating new social media within visual culture, have radically changed and expanded the ways of using and communicating with photographs. What are the consequences of the migration of amateur photography from the physical album to the screen, of the uses of websites for amateur communication, or of the increasing articulation of the photograph as a performance in the present rather than a signifier of the past? How to narrate the contemporary traffic in photographs? What are, indeed, the contemporary uses of photographs? Invited contributors include researchers, thinkers, artists and photographers investigating and articulating ways of using, managing and communicating with photographs in the present.
