International Research Symposium: Interwar Lens Cultures – Photography and Film in Transition 1919-1939 

Place: the Aula, Valand Academy

Time: Wednesday November 28 at 1.30 PM and Thursday November 29 at 9.30 AM

 

 

Interwar Lens Cultures – Photography and Film in Transition 1919-1939 will map, explore and contextualize significant media practices between 1919 and 1939. A new look at the period’s vernacular, scientific and popular lens-based practices and their cross-fertilization offer critical, interdisciplinary perspectives on Interwar visual culture, which was defined by a rising ubiquity of photography and film. The symposium will offer unique transdisciplinary exchanges between the contributing researchers in photography, art, film and visual culture. The historiographical ambition is to discuss various ways of researching, writing and doing photo and film history. Finally, Interwar Lens Cultures – Photography and Film in Transition 1919-1939 encourages cultural, social and political comparisons between the interwar period and the present.
