ESTRANGED REALITIES
Begins June 29, 2006, Ends June 30, 2006
Newport, England – http://artschool.newport.ac.uk

A one-day conference organised by and for postgraduate students. Its aim is to provide a forum for discussion of diverse aspects of representational practices as produced by photography and film (including digital manifestations). In hiding the conditions of its production, film and photography have been able to simultaneously produce ‘otherness’ and difference whilst also allowing for imaginative and subjective interventions into realist discourses. Whether as a vehicle for producing knowledge (however subjective or partial) or intervening in the production of reality, photography and film provide rich breeding grounds for discussions on the estrangement of the medium from itself and the medium from its subject.

The conference fee will be £20, including refreshments and lunch. Concessions available. Please contact the conference organisers as listed below. The day is expected to run from 09.30 to 17.30
