THURSDAY 28 SEPTEMBER, 18h00
FREE ADMISSION, IN FRENCH
The history of photography is certainly a history of recorded images, but it is also a history of images made from other images. The latest issue of Transbordeur magazine is devoted to these 'composite images', which challenge the very definition of photography. This evening will be an opportunity to reflect on the different moments in this history, from Francis Galton's composite portraits in the 19th century, through the avant-garde photomontages of the 1920s and 1930s, to the generation of images by artificial intelligence today.
With Max Bonhomme (Centre allemand d'histoire de l'art - DFK Paris), Christian Joschke (Beaux-Arts de Paris), Laura Truxa (EHESS, Paris) and Claus Gunti (Centre de la photographie Genève)
