2.0
In this course we will discuss different positions in relation to portrait and the body. Using texts and works by artists from different periods and different disciplines and approaches. During the course we will discuss the relationship between art photography and representation. Empirical body: the body as an archive and the constitution of a mug shot and much more. The other body: who is the Other and whether you can represent it, set it, map it, manipulate it.
