This workshop hosted with the Bard College, NYC focuses on a recent text We Stopped Taking Photos.

We Stopped Taking Photos by Ariel Goldberg and Yazan Khalili was originally published on e-flux. This work is an experiment in art form as text, and an extension of art projects. It examines the ethical complexities of the medium of photography, exploring its abusive use by powers of the state to surveil and police, whilst also being a mode of expression and vital form of documentary.

Working in the matrix of these entanglements, Goldberg and Khalili made the decision to stand back from their practices in order to reflect on its inherent dilemmas. The workshop will present an opportunity to discuss this text in light of your own experiences and work.

Participation is particularly welcome from students at any stage of their studies.

Places are limited, so please let us know if you cannot attend so we can allocate your place to someone else.

It is expected that you will have read the text ahead of the event.
