TALK: THE IMAGE OF WHITENESS WITH DANIEL C. BLIGHT

12 March - 12 March 2020

RSVP

ALL WELCOME

The invention and continuance of the “white race” is not just a political, social, and legal phenomenon — it is also visual. From the advent of early colonial photography in the nineteenth century to contemporary social media and photographic art, photography has always played and continues to play an integral role in the maintenance of the political and social hegemony of “whiteness.” The technology of the camera is not innocent, nor are the images it produces or the people who make them. This lecture engages the oppressive nature of whiteness and highlights some of the crucial work contemporary photographic artists are doing to subvert and critique its image and continuing power.

 

Daniel C. Blight is the author of The Image of Whiteness: Contemporary Photography and Racialization (SPBH Editions/Art on the Underground, 2019) and lecturer in Historical and Critical Studies in Photography, University Brighton.
