SYMPOSIUM: Obsession and Repetition: Documenting in Contemporary Photography

This one-day symposium explores ideas of documenting, obsession and process in contemporary visual art. With particular emphasis on photography, the speakers consider when repetition becomes obsession and how artists can use 'obsessive' forms of practice to articulate their ideas and new forms of figuration. Does this then lead to new and emergent forms of making and looking? Speakers include Briony Fer, Adam Phillips and Sophie Calle.

In collaboration with Kingston University's new BA Photography course and the Stanley Picker Gallery
