Post-Capitalist Photography Now!

The Photographers’ Gallery
Saturday 24 November: 10:30 – 17:00
Admission: £15/£10 members & concessions

In dialogue with All I Know Is What’s On The Internet, this one-day symposium examines contemporary photography’s relationships to neoliberalism. Questions addressed include how do we make sense of photography’s relationship to corporate power? Do participatory photographic cultures serve the interests of global capital or provide potential sites for resistance? In what ways can we think about photography as work? And does computational culture extend, disrupt or intensify photography’s historical relationships to post-Fordist capitalism?

Beyond the Shadows: Judy Glickman Lauder in conversation with Chris Boot

The Photographers’ Gallery
Wednesday 28 November: 18.30
Admission: free, booking essential

In her just-published book Beyond the Shadows (Aperture), New York-based photographer Judy Glickman Lauder responds to the Holocaust in photographs, depicting the death camps in expressive, personal pictures, often created using infrared film.  Into this context, she sets the story of Danish Rescue, portraits and stories revealing how the civilian population of occupied Denmark succeeded in saving the lives of almost the country’s entire Jewish population, upon the Nazi order for their deportation, 75 years ago.

Introduced by Brett Rogers, Director of The Photographers’ Gallery, Glickman Lauder will present a short talk about the work, followed by a conversation with Chris Boot, about the Holocaust, the Danish Rescue, Glickman Lauder’s personal journey, and their relevance to the world today.
