Since its beginning photography has been an instrument for social control and
consumption, as it can be experienced in family and passport photographs with a considerable notion of issues about exclusions and inclusions. The conference: ‘Where photography belongs’ is arranged by Copenhagen Photo Festival and PhD Art historian Charlotte Præstegaard Schwartz in collaboration with The National Museum of Photography, the Royal Danish Library. The conference aims to investigate various intersections of the photographic medium and human communities. The conference’s Daniel Rubinstein, Christian Vium, Mette Sandbye, Joanna Lowry, Esther Shalev-Gerz, Mette Kia Krabbe Meyer, Nanna Debois Buhl, Karen Irvine og Kim Knoppers.

First part of the conference consider photography from an aesthetical and philosophical point of view while second part focusses on photography as a meaning-maker in the creation of communities; to how communities are being represented and reshaped by artistic practices; how experiences of belonging and solidarity have been formed by photography historically and in our contemporary life.
