Visible Economies book launch
Immo Klink - Chanel, Mayday at Mayfair Series

Immo Klink Chanel, Mayday at Mayfair Series (2002)

The official launch of Visible Economies takes place this Wednesday 31st October, as part of the symposium of the same name.

“Photography developed with the rise of major cities during the last great period of Globalization. Visible Economies explores a selection of photographic works that involve established and emerging forms of urban landscape, documentary, and artists’ moving image as creative representational strategies. The aim of this symposium and accompanying publication is to propose a series of observations and conversations about the visibility of cities and economies. With a shifting focus between political and poetic depictions of public urban environments, this symposium offers suggestions as much as descriptions of how we congregate within and use such spaces as modern citizens.”

Brighton Photo Biennial 2012
Brighton Photo Biennial 2012

The fifth Brighton Photo Biennial starts today and runs until the 4th of November. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Agents of Change: Photography and the Politics of Space’.

“How is space constructed, controlled and contested? How is photography implicated in these processes and what are the tensions and possibilities involved in this dialogue?”

The Biennial is presented and curated by Photoworks, and features free exhibitions, new commissions, events and interventions, at a host of established and more unusual venues, bringing international and emerging photographers to the city.
