ARTE-1106B Fragments and Postures

This course aims to take on the phenomenon of contemporaneous visual culture from the photographic standpoint. It is about visiting the "common places" that photography has managed to establish in our perception of images and those that are now being conceived, the new ways to see the world that the sensitive surface has created, that now seem to be as ordinary as our own sight. Each of these "common places" is displayed throughout history and the present of photography, bringing together examples, authors and images. This opens a panorama for reflection that covers family photography, press photography, experiments of contemporaneous art, scientific uses, visual events in the media and the creation of digital images.
