Three times lucky for me: I’ll be talking at Birkbeck again this morning. Drawing on notions of authorship and translation, and making connections with ‘the curatorial’ and ‘the translational’ I will consider some case studies that I’ve been looking at recently, including the book Ways of Seeing.
I have been invited to talk about publications in relation to film and video work at a conference in Zurich next month. The focus is specifically on images, so am revisiting and thinking about a series of books I’ve worked on in relation to film and video work. (Click here for further info).
On Monday 25 January 2016 I did a talk at CASS, upon invitation of Ania Dabrowska, a long-time friend, photographer and lecturer. The audience consisted of a mix of BA students in photography, MA students in Fine Art and some staff. I was given 1.5 hours to talk about my views on working with artists, curators and organisations, and my experiences in editing and producing catalogues, monographs and artists’ books. Using a broad range of examples it was a good opportunity to discuss some of my thinking about processes of collaboration, and notions of presentation versus re-presentation, mediation and translation from one medium into another.
As illustration a screen grab of a facebook exchange I had with Paul O’Neill a couple of years ago I used as part of my introduction.
