  • Prof. Julian Stallabrass - The Courtauld Institute of Art

By looking at the way in which the 9/11 attacks are remembered photographically, this lecture will examine how the ‘iconic’ image fares in an age of intensive media saturation. Can exceptional images encapsulate exceptional events, as they once seemed to do, and if not, what replaces them?

Julian Stallabrass is a writer, photographer, curator and lecturer. He is Professor in art history at the Courtauld Institute of Art, and is the author of Art Incorporated, Oxford University Press 2004. He is the editor of Documentary, in the MIT/ Whitechapel Documents of Contemporary Art series; and Memory of Fire: Images of War and the War of Images, Photoworks, Brighton 2013.
