Inaugural lecture 2018-2019

The Image as a Form of Knowledge, by Cristina de Middel

The inaugural lecture marks the beginning of the academic year. For this academic year 2018/2019 we welcomed Cristina de Middel, a photographer who is in the process of joining the Magnum Photos international photographic co-operative.

On this occasion our guest speaker was joined by Jordi Sánchez-Navarro, Dean of the UOC's Faculty of Information and Communication Sciences. Their conversation explored the role of images in society today, the dividing lines between reality and representation, and how we need to maintain a critical stance.
