“Catastrophe and the Power of Art”
Pre-Discussion Series No. 2
“Using Photography and Film to Express Catastrophe: Documenting, Artistry, Morals”

* Booked Out

Catastrophe and the Power of Art Related Program
Conducted in Japanese

Documenting a disaster in photographs or film/video footage and releasing the resulting images can serve to inform the wider world about the event and encourage debate, as well as aid recovery and problem-solving. On the other hand, when we consider the victims of a disaster, including the deceased, from a moral point of view the question becomes one of how to address the propriety of releasing and displaying shocking images, and/or the “aesthetics” of those images, that is, their artistic properties.

At this discussion, artists who have explored disasters through their work will join art researchers to examine the characteristics of documentation media such as photography and video. The participants will also investigate the documentary value, social significance, morals, and artistic qualities seen in presentations of disaster.
