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.”
The symposium is presented by the University Of Brighton. More information on the event is available on from the Brighton Photo Biennial site. The book is also available to buy online from Photoworks’ shop.
