unfixing images

PhDArts in Leiden presents a symposium and a discussion on imagery in the flux of ploitical action:

The symposium UNFIXING IMAGES focuses on visual documents that develop within processes of political resistance. As bi-products of larger socio-political struggles these documents can be understood both as visual traces of “lived politics” and as tools that can diversify hegemonial historiographies. In this context images are understood as “variational characters”: their “meaning” is inherently unstable as it is intimately linked to the temporality of the processes that bring them forth and continually influence how they are seen.
