Doing Visual Politics: towards an expanded pedagogy
A three-day residential workshop outside of Melbourne to support the development of an international network of artists and academics working at the intersection of art, photography and archives, social practice, visual politics and public pedagogy. The residency participants shared and developed models for sustainable practices that harness the potential of expanded approaches to pedagogy for increased criticality and civic engagement. A series of readings, workshops, food exchange and case studies were delivered with a focus on ethics, sustainability, and socio-pedagogic practices.
