Are there temporal boundaries to memory? How can we visually represent memory and place? In the constant re-emergence of a restless past what role do photographs play in evoking actual events? Aware of the present being shaped and re-shaped by memory how can we understand place and history?
This symposium will bring together researchers, visual artists and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines to dialogue and critically explore question around memory, place and photography as well as addressing issues of representation.
“We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon
