Remembering Wars with Photography - iMPACT DOC Amsterdam
On Friday 24 May I will take part in a debate on the use of war images and the necessity to keep remembering wars with photography.
In her latest book Regarding the Pain of Others, Susan Sontag wrote that the public should remain open to images of world problems because they should not be forgotten.
The debate is about the role of war images in our media age. Two photographers are taking part in the debate, which is led by editor-in-chief of Pf Magazine Ton Hendriks. Miquel Gonzalez has made the photobook Memoria Perdida about the mass graves of the Spanish Civil War. Many of these graves have remained hidden to this day. Misha Pipercic made a photobook Once when we were happy about the memories of his own family about the Balkan war.
