iciHaiti - NOTICE : Online «Critical Photography» course, registrations open
As part of the activities related to the Fund for Emerging Photography in Haiti, the Knowledge and Freedom Foundation (FOKAL) is offering from December 13 to 17, 2021 an online methodological workshop on "critical photography" born from Nicola Lo Calzo's long-term photographic research on the memories of colonial slavery, its resistance and abolition.

"Based on the author's research, the issues of the photographic representation of power and its dissent will be addressed, first from a historical/theoretical point of view, and then begin to reflect on the possibilities offered by the photographic gesture, to build a postcolonial epistemology-aesthetic of subordinate groups or historically marginalized communities.

How can a photographic project centered on a community, an ethnic, gender or sexual minority escape the stereotype and a caricatured vision ? How can the photographer help to deconstruct the dominant and hierarchical representations of the world ? What challenges arise when photography aims to become a tool for raising awareness of crucial issues in contemporary society such as the memory of slavery, but also systemic racism, sexism, homophobia, the experience of the fringes ? How can photography act as an instrument of dissent from established visual codes ?

During group sessions, based on case studies and practical examples, lines will be drawn for a situated, reflective and postcolonial photograph.

This workshop, held in Haiti, is open to photographers and art history students as well as image enthusiasts who want to reflect on the politics of the image.

Classes will be held online every day from December 13 to 17, 2021, 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., for 30 participants.

If you are interested, send your application before December 10, 2021 to : fpehaiti@gmail.com with a cover letter and a short biography (max. 5 lines).
