Since the late nineteenth century the print photograph in the media stood as a powerful tool for denouncing social injustice and claiming better life conditions – i.e. as seen in the work of Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, or Joshua Benoliel, as many others. In the early decades of the twentieth century the use of images had a significant boost with film, when directors such as Flaherty, Eisenstein, John Grierson, Vertov, Dvorjenko or Jivens, combining documental intentions with avant-garde experimental claims, made possible to discuss political and historical conditions. The aim of the conference is to discuss and debate photographs and film as a social tool from a leftist stance. In particular, to examine and explore the relation of documentary practices and political commitment in different historical circumstances throughout the twentieth and the twenty first centuries. We invite paper submission of no more than 500 words abstract that focuses on photography and film related to: - the creation of documentary as a social and political weapon; - the soviet revolution as an experimental wave in - photography, design and film; - anticolonial and postcolonial imagery; - women rights and feminist imagery; - avant gardes and ideology claims; - the role of images in the leftist movements; - Contemporary art practices and social and political criticism; - Alan Sekula legacy and the political commitment with images.
