Tomáš Dvořák, Indistinct outlines of things

Photo FAMU invites for a lecture of the cycle of guest lectures Tomáš Dvořák, Indistinct outlines of things.

The lecture will discuss changes in the understanding of image and object related to the birth of photography in the 19th century. It will try to explain why the effort to make sense of these new technical images often turned to ancient atomists and their theory of vision while also paying attention to the relationships between photography and industrial production, financial economy or meteorology.
