March 2nd & 3rd, NYC: “The Photographic Universe: A Conference”

SYMPOSIUM
The Photographic Universe: A Conference
Wednesday & Thursday, March 2 & 3, 2011
Parsons The New School for Design
Theresa Lang Community and Student Center
55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor
New York City
Admission: Free

From the about page:
“This two-day symposium brings together a range of leading photographers, scientists, theoreticians, historians, and philosophers from Parsons as well as other institutions,  to reflect and discuss photography at a pivotal moment in its history.

The field of photography is constantly changing. What constitutes a ‘photographer’ or a ‘photograph’ has always been redefined by technological innovations, never more so than during the last two decades of the emerging digital revolution and the Internet. Quite possibly, photography is now at a similar place to where it was during its invention ‹ a time when its cultural significance quickly grew due to fast and innovative technological development. The Photographic Universe: A Conference reflects on this current moment, with the persuasive digitalization of the medium and its speedy permeation into contemporary life. What is the importance of photography as a medium and a discipline? Prominent thinkers and practitioners discuss their roles in the expanding photographic field, evaluate its increasingly blurry relationship between art and life, and speculate on how photographic images will continue to change the way we see our world.”
