Articulating signs in the city

Ferrari, Diego [Artist], Jean, McNeil and Laura, Cuch (2019) Articulating signs in the city. In: Cities of Light : Barcelona 2019; 21 - 23 Feb 2019, Barcelona, Spain. (Unpublished)


Diego Ferrari will introduce photographic projects evolving from his artistic concerns and research, and which have also informed his teaching of fine art approaches to photography. In his conception, photography becomes a playful process which allows for an interdisciplinary approach between photography, performance art/’happenings’ and the public space. The act of photographing becomes itself performative and challenges ideas of public and private space, and what can and cannot beenacted in the city. Ferrari will present photography from projects in Berlin, London, Barcelona and Johannesburg, where he has worked with various universities and institutions such as Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Goldsmiths and Kingston Universities in London, Elisava Barcelona School, the House of World Cultures in Berlin and the Goethe Institute in South Africa. The work elicits an ambiguity between personal subjectivity and social objectivity as a fertile platform to reflect on the psychological as well as bodily and metaphysical relationship to the notion of public space. Cities of Light: Barcelona is co-organised by Diego Ferrari, Urban Photographers Association (UPA) / Kingston University, UK and Elisava University, Barcelona; Laura Cuch, Urban Photographers Association (UPA) / Goldsmiths, University of London and University College London; and Jean McNeil, University of East Anglia, UK; in collaboration with Institut d’Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya.
