“EXPANDED DOCUMENTARY – POST-DOCUMENTARY PRACTICES IN CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY"
Harri Pälviranta

The workshop 'Expanded Documentary – Post-documentary practices in contemporary photography’ is designed to provoke photographers to use their medium in elaborative ways. Oftentimes the issues that photographers touch are so demanding and many-sided that alternative approaches need to be adopted. Even though classical visual story-telling is important, stretching the photographic medium’s possibilities may appear beneficial, particularly for projects touching difficult and edged societal topics.

The goal is to provide participants a historically and theoretically grounded perspective to image making which challenges the medium itself and thus suggests alternative perspectives to photography.

The workshop will last 4 days, but developed in two moments: 3rd and 4th June // 7th and 8th October.

What students will learn:
The workshop will focus on participants ongoing projects but also offer views to theoretical considerations around documentary practice and witnessing. Historical perspective to post-documentary approach is introduced and the idea of witnessing carefully conceptualized. These are shared as lectures but also during the discussions with the participants. Participants are suggested to apply this 'expanded methodology' in the execution of their ongoing projects.

Applications:
Participation in the Workshop is limited to 10 participants. Candidates must pre-register on the Atelier de Lisboa website and send a portfolio and a short biography (atelierdelisboa@gmail.com). Contact Atelier de Lisboa for any clarification.

BIO

Harri Pälviranta (born 1971, Finland) is a photographic artist and researcher. He holds a Doctor of Arts degree in photography from the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Helsinki (2012) and MA in Media Studies from the University of Turku (2005).


Recently his works has been included in exhibitions at the Fotomuseum Winterthur (Switzerland), Benaki Museum in Athens (Greece), Kunst Haus Wien (Austria), Helsinki City Museum (Finland) and Deictorhallen, Haus der Photographie (Hamburg, Germany), and solo shows at Gallery H2O in Barcelona (Spain) and the Latvian Museum of Photography in Riga (Latvia). To name some achievements from the past, in 2007 he won the PhotoEspana Descubrimientos award and in 2010 he was awarded in the LeadAwards prize in Hamburg. In 2020, he was awarded with a four-year full working grant by the Finnish Cultural Foundation (2020-2023).


At the core of Pälviranta’s artistic curiosity are issues relating to violence and masculinity, and often in his works he bridges these two themes. What is noteworthy is that he understands both of these concepts through their wide definitions. Like Slavoj Žižek, Pälviranta sees violence as a diverse practice: it can be seen as subjective and objective, and it can take both symbolic and systemic forms. Connected to this, his comprehension of masculinity is also layered: masculinity can be seen as culturally encoded and performed and renewed in commonplace practices.


Theoretically much of his work falls into practice that can be categorized as documentary. However, in Pälviranta’s use documentary does not only refer to classical documentaries, his work rather activates critical practices within post-documentary discourse. In his most recent finished projects, he connects with archival practices and uses documentary as a term also referring to materiality of the image.
