Practicing the archive with Candice Jansen

Event info

In this talk, Candice Jansen speculates on the ways that photography and its archives should be put to the use of learning and visual redress. She reflects on her current tenure as Curator of Research & Exhibitions Programming at Market Photo Workshop, a learning resource center for the advancement of photography in Africa. Jansen suggests potential futures of black archives through the work of Market Photo Workshop and its growing research agenda that intends to develop new curriculums on photography that looks beyond canons to centre black life and its photographers.  

This two-hour talk and Q+A is part of a series of eight aiming at creating  connections between the processes of making work and how local, international, ethical, creative and commercial concerns overlap in the  showing, publishing, and dissemination of  work. The talks will examine the photobook, the exhibition, the archive, collaborative work, the photo-festival, power, and regional identities. Each talk stands alone, but forms part of the series.  

The series runs from 3 March-21 April and is available at a discounted rate when compared to attending each talk individually. See details of the full series here: https://rps.org/looking3
