As part of the Biennale of Student Photography, in December 2017 International Symposium of Photography was organised at the Academy of Arts Novi Sad. We initiated a discussion on photography as a method of visual research. Focusing on contemporary photography and its obvious connections with other arts and media, as well as with the advent of digital technologies, it has become indisputable that photography is inherently intermedial. This symposium explored the ways in which intermediality enhances photography’s artistic endeavour, how it shapes our understanding of contemporary photography and how it can help us to understand the history of photography as a whole.
Gathering academic institutions, art venues and photography research centres from Serbia and Europe, the Symposium mapped diverse educational methods important for future photography development programs and it gave reflections on contemporary photography education in the region.
After the completion of Symposium we published The Book of Abstracts (studentbiennial-ns.com) which consists of short presentations of each proceeding accompanied with speakers’ brief biographical note.
Now we would like to publish the first volume in our series dedicated to photography.
We are launching our call for original and inspiring papers to supplement the volume.
In document below, you will find a detailed call for papers with a range of topics and specifications on how to apply.
We look forward to your submissions!
