TIME-LABS: Cuba Photography Missions

Ongoing

This S.I. project starts from a recent collaboration between ISA, Universidad de las Artes (Art Academy in Havana) and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and will focus on the development of the Cuba Photography Missions (C.P.M.: social-documentary photography projects related to tangible and intangible heritage researched in healthcare, education, urbanization, ...) and on the collaboration between Cuban and Belgian photographers in which students will be involved. A Photography Research Center (P.R.C.) will be implemented at the Fototeca de Cuba (photography museum in Havana) where the photographers will exchange experience (intervisions). Digital material and books for a library will be provided as well as hardware to help the Fototeca build a digital archive of the 80.000 historic photos stored at the museum. Workshops for art students and a public symposium will be organized at ISA with lectures by the 8 participating photographers and international specialists in the history of photography. The project is summarized in this mindmap.
