In conjunction with the In camera and in public exhibition, Monash University Art and Design and Centre for Contemporary Photography will host a free symposium on photography, privacy and public space, to be held at CCP.

What are the key legal and philosophical issues relating to photography in public places? What pressures are recent changes in the relationship between publicity and privacy putting on the meaning and significance of ‘privacy’, the body and the human face? How are photographers and other artists responding to transformations in urban space brought about by increasingly participatory and automated forms of surveillance?

Chaired by Dr Anne Marsh, Professor of Art Theory in the Faculty of Art & Design at Monash University, with presentations by:

  • Dr Melissa Miles, Lecturer, Art Theory Program in the Faculty of Art & Design at Monash University
  • Dr Jessica Whyte, Post-Doctoral Fellow in the School of English, Communication and Performance Studies, Monash University
  • Professor Mark Davison, Faculty of Law, Monash University
  • Dr Daniel Palmer, Senior Lecturer, Art Theory Program in the Faculty of Art & Design at Monash University
  • Dr Martyn Jolly, Head of Photography and Media Arts at the ANU School of Art
