Ethical images: on violence, trust and care
We do ethical things with images. Images are not just representations, but social agents which intervene in the world. Images weave the relationships that we maintain with other people. Images may hurt, betray, or offend. Yet they can also be an offering, a reward, a form of love, esteem, and care. In this talk, I will talk about violence and care in images, not only focusing on how these ethical dispositions have been depicted visually, but rather on how they are necessarily involved in the processes of image-making and image-circulation. Most of the metaphors about the act of making images have been based on a mode of violence and mistrust. And if we changed this paradigm?

The series is free and open to all. It gathers anthropologists and image-makers interested in exploring the ontological and epistemological connections between images, aging and care, treating the relationship and these phenomena as requiring and inviting interrogation. Check up our current line-up here.
