Deplacement and parallax in image-mediated relationships

This project focuses on domestic photography collected during ethnographic fieldwork and its centrality in drawing biographical, cultural and historical narratives. It gathers, in the same interventive space, both the theoretical perspectives of visual anthropologies, the fieldwork methodologies of traditional ethnography and the strategies to seek an aesthetic rupture with the sensible that are characteristic of participatory and community art. It foresees the development of research methodologies that equate the exhibitionary space as ethnographic field, and it is rooted in AO NORTE Film Society activities such as Who Are We Here? and Affective Cartographies. It is also undertaken as a collaboration with the DIVERSITAS research group in the São Paulo University, hosting a joint collaboration project between researchers in Portugal and Brasil.
