SEMINAR

To compliment the exhibition “Power & Paper” we are running a two day seminar program titled “Contemporary Photography, Archives and Documented History”.

Artists and art theorists from Europe and Norway have been invited to Bodø to discuss their own practices and experiences around the use of photographic archives to contextualise the program. The theme is concentrated around issues of photography, official/documented history, individual relationships with memory and history, concepts of manipulation, authenticity and authorship.
