This seminar is organized by the European Centre for Documentary Research (eCDR), as a complementary activity to expand the research work developed by its members and to generate links and collaborations with artists, theorists and other researchers.

The present session focuses on contemporary documentary practices in photography and film, through interdisciplinary approaches. Amongst other topics, the speakers will present work that deals with the boundaries of representation and visibility, new technologies and new conceptualizations of visual practice, as well as crossings between different media and collaborations between practitioners and writers.
