Symposion on Photography XXI: The Violence of Images

Photographic images have long since forfeited their ability to be taken for granted. Repeatedly reappropriated and reapplied, they appear to establish all kinds of things, especially when the truth is no longer the truth, as Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York and present attorney of the American president, recently asserted. Does this give them […]

They all share an interest in what Henri Lefebvre described, in his Critique of Everyday Life, as “lived experience”—in the conviction that this […]
