Session One: Photography

Master Instructor: 
Craig Havens, Ph.D., Photographer/Artist

Benütze Foto als Waffe! (Use Photography As A Weapon!)

Reimagining Monumental Structures Through Countermonumental Strategies

July 14th, 12-1:30pm PST

The ability of Photography to memorialize a moment in time with crystal clarity was the reason for its enjoying such success in becoming the dominant visual medium from the 20th Century through today. At the same time, this singular focus on capturing monumental perspectives is precisely what has constricted the practice and possibilities of photography. 

This struggle to not allow a memory to fade is the problematic underpinning of why monumental structures consistently fail. In trying to last forever they make their temporality even more apparent and their ability to preserve themselves even more futile.

Craig Havens’ recent research on the subject of Early German Countermonuments and their subsequent creative strategies represents a way forward for expanding the field of Photography beyond its Monumental roots. His Camera As Countermonument series of photographs represent the uprooting and reinterpretation of physical monumental structures which were originally erected to be seen in a clearly prescribed manner. 

Join us to explore how Photography and other visual art forms can be seen not only from a binary position of Monument or Anti-Monument, but through the multiple facets of a Countermonumental perspective.
