Writing Photographs

Tate Modern / London / England

Writing Photographs will bring together artists, writers, curators and researchers, to present and discuss photography as an expanded practice. Building on London College of Communication’s reputation for research into conceptual photography, the day aims to counter traditional notions of image and text, adding a contemporary understanding of Writing Photographs through inter-medial constellations.

The morning will start with a series of experimental and perfomative provocations, followed by workshops that develop on these in the afternoon. Results will be shared at the end of the day with all participants.

We are inviting experimental presentations, which consider how photography is expanded, altered and dissected through the use of text, voice and language in exhibition practices today. ​Please download the full call out here. Deadline is 30 July 2018 at midnight.

Writing Photographs is a collaboration between Tate and The Photography and the Contemporary Imaginary Research Hub at London College of Communication. ​​
