The workshop will address methods for the visual analysis of photography, with special consideration of photographs that represent the Indígenas. These photographs of the so-called indigenous and ethnic groups of Mexico – particularly those of Raúl Estrada Discua, Luis Márquez and Nacho López – contributed considerably to developing a visual language that shaped the modern ideas of race, ethnicity, nation and trans-nation.
The workshop in Spanish language will take place with the participation of Deborah Dorotinsky, Professor at the Institute for Aesthetic Studies at the Universidad Autónoma de México, and Margit Kern, Professor for Art History at Freie Universität Berlin.
Those interested in taking part in the workshop are asked to register at firstname.lastname@example.org.
