Andrea Jösch 'The Photograph of the Inhospitable (or a Reasonable Doubt on the Construction of an Imaginary that Never Materialised)'

Andrea Jösch

05 Oct. 2013

This lecture offers a critical reading of the photo album of the collection of the Universidad de Navarra and the album Vistas fotográficas de las faenas y puertos salitreros (Photographic views of the nitrate works and ports), produced by the Nitrate Association of Propaganda in 1899. This raises an approach to the performative aspects of these images, in which the photographs of the inhospitable cross over the projection space – superseding the standardisation of its photographic dimension – to maintain a dialogue with the current representations of mining in the north, as well as with the country’s image as projected abroad.
