Eadweard Muybridge - Re-presenting History in the Digital Age
Hosted by the BFI (NFT2)
Friday 21st May 2010
2 - 5.30pm
A symposium marking the culmination of a 6 month Arts and Humanities Research Council project, between Kingston University and Kingston Museum in South West London. The symposium celebrates the launch of an innovative on-line resource which draws together information on collections of Muybridge's work world-wide for the first time.
The symposium itself, will critically reflect on some of the crucial cultural and aesthetic questions to have arisen from this contemporary heritage project. Three presentations will explore representation of the body within photography, the ideological meaning of space and place within cultural communication, and the contemporary trend towards digitisation within arts and heritage projects.
