The International Conference on Contemporary Photography: Visualization and Urban History
CONTEMPHOTO ’13 has been organized with the aim of reaching a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective on urban issues, history and photography. Multiple roles of photography are going to be explored in relation to urban history as document, witness, survey, archive, advertisement and artifact.
A key theme is the relationship between visual history and urban (and rural) change throughout the ast two centuries.
Exploring the role of how photography shapes issues of identity, place and citizenship within the city; how it documents urban otherness (that of homelessness, or of tourism); how it archives urban memory; and how it documents the erotic or/and tragic variety of street life and how it containes historical facts are the main objectives of the interdisciplinary conference of Contemphoto '13.
