Women Picturing Revolution
|Nov 16, 2016
Against the backdrop of ongoing chaos, women are documenting wars, conflicts, crises, and revolutions, in both private realms and public spaces. Their work ranges from fine art photography—made as a personal response to forced silence, political oppression, and/or the inability to act—to photojournalism, documenting political and social upheaval. Featuring contemporary imagemakers in conversation, the Women Picturing Revolution panel will examine not only these photographs, but also the conditions under which women make such compelling images. In dialogue with photographers who engage these issues, the panel will aim to reclaim and retell a history that is both radical and necessary.
Panelists: Grace Aneiza Ali (moderator), Donna De Cesare, Tanya Habjouqa, and Muriel Hasbun.
This panel was co-organized by ICP faculty member Lesly Deschler Canossi and curator Zoraida Lopez-Diago.
