Remembering Forward presents a series of conversations on photography and temporality. Photography, particularly as a digitized medium, embodies repetition. It also continues to be positioned as a useful means of recollection, an aide de memoir. For the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, repetition is enacted and accumulates forward in time, the opposite of recollection, a method of recovering that which exists back in time. Kierkegaard’s dialectic offers a framework for examining how photography may reconfigure the temporal dimension. In what ways do artists working with photography contribute to the temporal conditions that define repetition and recollection? How do these artists engage temporality, through the production, reception, and circulation of their works? What axis of time does photography propose when production today continues to accelerate the proliferation, duplication, and disposal of images? A selection of different practitioners will engage these questions at LA><ART, advancing discussions surrounding photographic practices today, as well as issues of image production more broadly.
