Discussion: Everyone is Present by Terry Kurgan (February 14)

Join Terry Kurgan in conversation with Pamila Gupta, Sarah Nuttall and Hlonipha Mokoena on Thursday, February 14 at WiSER

11 February 2019 - 10:26

In Everyone is Present, Terry Kurgan begins with a family snapshot made by her Polish grandfather in 1939 on the eve of the war.

Presenting this evocative image as a repository of multiple histories - public, private, domestic, familial and generational - she sets off on a series of meditations on photography that give us startling insights into how photographs work: what they conceal, how they mislead, what provocations they contain.

Join Kurgan for a discussion on her remarkable monograph with Pamila Gupta, Sarah Nuttall and Hlonipha Mokoena.


Date: Thursday, February 14 (12:30 PM for 1 PM)

Venue: WiSER seminar room, 6th floor, Richard Ward building, Wits University 

(It is generally easiest to Uber onto campus because parking is often difficult. Ask to be dropped at the Origins Museum at the top of Yale Road. WiSER is about 100 metres east in the Richard Ward building.)

RSVP: Najibha.Deshmukh@wits.ac.za
