Lecture in Photography: Diana Matar

Stage Two, 618 S Michigan Ave, Chicago IL, 60605

Lecture in Photography: Diana Matar

Using photography, testimony, and archive, Diana Matar explores the controversial question of how beauty can be used in the depiction of power and violence. Speaking about her long-term projects Evidence and This Violent Land, Matar will discuss the practicalities of her research methods and explore how photography can respond to history and our contemporary political reality.

 

Lectures in Photography are co-presented by the MoCP and the Photography Department at Columbia College Chicago.
