In Conversation: On Reflecting the Suffering of Others
Tuesday 9 October, 6.30-8pm.
In her 2003 essay Regarding the Pain of Others, Susan Sontag both underscores the importance of photography in communicating something of the reality of war, whilst observing that what photography is able to communicate is limited, ‘those who have not lived through such things can’t understand, can’t imagine the experiences such images represent’. More recently TJ Demos, in The Migrant Image, examines the ways contemporary artists have representated mobile lives to propose new possibilities for a politics of equality, social justice, and historical consciousness. In this conversation with Harley Weir, the creator of Homes, and Richard Williams, Chair of local charity Sanctuary on Sea, Louise Purbrick seeks to ask what can and should photography do? The discussion will explore the artist’s initial impulse to make this photographic work, the ethical issues and parameters that have shaped its creation, publication and exhibition and what impact Homes may have had on others and the migrants and refugees whose lives Weir represents.
