Saturday 15 October 2011, 1—5pm
at Centre for Contemporary Photography.
Gold-coin donation, no bookings required.
In conjunction with the In camera and in public exhibition, Monash University Art and Design and Centre for Contemporary Photography will host a free symposium on photography, privacy and public space, to be held at CCP.
What are the key legal and philosophical issues relating to photography in public places? What pressures are recent changes in the relationship between publicity and privacy putting on the meaning and significance of 'privacy', the body and the human face? How are photographers and other artists responding to transformations in urban space brought about by increasingly participatory and automated forms of surveillance?
