Minor photography / the case of (post) surrealist photography

19/11/2010 - 20/11/2010
Organisé par le Lieven Gevaert Research Centre for Photography
Lieux: Museum Leuven, Vanderkelenstraat 28, 3000 Leuven / STUK kunstencentrum, Naamsestraat 96, Leuven

The Lieven Gevaert Research Centre for Photography organizes an international conference the aim of which is twofold:
Firstly to open the debate on the use value of the notion of minor‐photography for photo theory. Minor photography is understood as a type of photography that, similar to the ‘minor literatures’ theorized by Deleuze and Guattari, develops new visions of the medium due to a specific use of its own peripheral position, both geographically and institutionally, and to its creative distance from the ‘centre’.
Secondly, to apply this notion to a largely overlooked corpus of (post)surrealist photography both in Belgium and in other ‘peripheral’ locations in its dynamic relation to the ‘dominant’ language of the centre (or centres: Paris, London, New York).
Hence, the conference will be divided into two parts, although overlapping papers are also welcomed.
