Working with Allan Sekula – Workshop by Hilde Van Gelder

Description

28 Sep 2015, Mon 10:00am - 5:00pm
Block 43 Malan Road

Session 1 – Morning
The workshop intends to focus more deeply on Sekula’s critical realism while comparing two slide sequences: “Dismal Science” (1989/92, chapter 8 of Fish Story) and “Reverse Magellan” (2010, part of Ship of Fools). Emphasis will be put on the “specific temporal and pictorial experience” (Sekula in Fish Story, p. 202) that they generate. That will allow for a deeper, comparative understanding of Sekula’s employment of various photographic formats in installation contexts (and in books). As a result, his paradigmatic resistance to the predominant tableau-model in contemporary photography will be addressed via a specific analysis of certain photographs and objects included in Ship of Fools / The Dockers’ Museum (2010-2013).

Session 2 – Afternoon
Screening of Allan Sekula’s A Short Film for Laos (2006) and Tsukiji (2001) (if there is enough time also Gala (2005)), with general discussion on his filmic oeuvre.
