The Left Conference, Photography and Film Criticism
Lisbon, 9-10 November 2018
The aim of the third edition of The Left Conference, Photography and Film Criticism is to debate the use of photographs and film from a leftist stance. In particular, to critical examine and explore the relation of documentary practices with political commitment in different historical circumstances throughout the twentieth century and the early twenty first century.
Culture has served as a “weapon of the struggle” during the Cold War. It played a central role in leftist literary circles, socialist realist poetry and muralism, as well as in the CIA-backed Congress for Cultural Freedom, whose artist groups embraced Abstract Expressionism and modernist poetry.
During the latter half of the twentieth century, the rivalry between the United States and the erstwhile Soviet Union, dubbed the Cold War, decisively shaped the global world order that emerged in the aftermath of WWII and the dismantling of the western European empires.
