I have the pleasure to announce the publication of an edited collection
titled /Photomediations: A Reader/ that gathers 20 scholarly and
curatorial texts on the relationship between photography and other
media. The book is available on an open access basis - i.e. it's free
to download in a pdf format. You can also buy a paper copy.
We're holding a symposium to celebrate the launch of the book and to
discuss photography in a dynamic framework of photomediations on the
19th February 2016 at Goldsmiths. Please come and join us. And please
download the book!
PHOTOMEDIATIONS: A SYMPOSIUM AND BOOK LAUNCH
19 February 2016, 3pm-7pm
Goldsmiths, University of London, Room PSH326
FREE AND OPEN TO ALL. NO NEED TO REGISTER.
Come and join us for a half-day symposium exploring the relationship
between photography and other media, and celebrating the launch of the
open access book,/Photomediations: A Reader/ (London: Open Humanities
Press, 2016), edited by Kamila Kuc and Joanna Zylinska (free to download):
The concept of photomediations brings together the hybrid ontology of
‘light-based media’ and the fluid dynamism of ‘mediation’. The papers
presented in the symposium will challenge the traditional classification
of photography as suspended between art and social practice in order to
capture the dynamism of the photographic medium today. They will also
explore photography’s kinship with other media – and with us, humans,

Goldsmiths on 19.02: you’ll need to take a replacement bus, or travel
one stop on the train from London Bridge to New Cross instead.
