On The Surface: Photography on Architecture 2019

 

ON THE SURFACE: PHOTOGRAPHY ON ARCHITECTURE

5TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
VISUAL SPACES OF CHANGE: UNVEILING THE PUBLICNESS
OF URBAN SPACE


The 5th International Conference ON THE SURFACE Photography on Architecture took place on the past 31st of May at MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology) .

The program of the conference consisted of three round tables in which photography was explored as a significant instrument of research to build innovative and critical visions on architecture as a broad field of knowledge operating within larger systems, with cultural, artistic, technical and historical dimensions. The main focus of the 5th edition of On The Surface was to question how different dimensions of the public sphere can be significantly understood or refracted through different lenses and perspectives. At the heart of this debate was the contemporary discussion that the city's image is itself modified within the actual process of change according to specific sensory and cognitive conditions, influencing the readability of public space and the imagination of the public sphere. At this conference these and other interrelations were debated and explored to infer how they can establish new spatial connections in expanded territories of cosmopolitan interaction. Within this broader discussion, each roundtable addressed the following issues, among other issues posed by invited authors.

Also, during the Conference, all participants were given the opportunity to visit the exhibition “Fiction and Fabrication: Photography of Architecture After the Digital Turn”, on display at MAAT until the 19th of August 2019. This exhibition is curated by Pedro Gadanho (who gave a guided tour of the exbition) and Sérgio Fazenda Rodrigues.
