James D. Ewing World Affairs Lecture with Marcelo Brodsky: Memory Works
“Photography is essential in shaping the lives of contemporary people, and it plays a role as activator of thought and memory. Working with images is central in language today, particularly for the younger generations. Activating history, bringing images to life within complex visual narratives, is a central aspect of my artwork. Language is changing, and photography is a leading medium in this change. Memory works.”
Argentinian-born photographer, conceptual artist, and activist Marcelo Brodskywas forced into exile in Europe after a violent 1976 coup in Argentina. While exiled, Brodsky studied economics and photography in Barcelona, travelled widely, and broadened his involvement in the field of human rights. In 1986, two years after returning to Argentina, he founded Latinstock, the picture agency that has been the center of his international activism for over 30 years.
