Workshop: “Images in Conflict: How to Respond to War?”
Estonian Academy of Arts, 2022 10 24-28

I’ll be supervising a 5-day workshop dedicated to conflict and war imagery as well as exploring a variety of potential critical, artistic, and emotional responses. How can we, as artists and practitioners of visual culture, make sense of the turbulent changes and violent conflicts? As photographers, we have a particular relationship with image-making that necessitates an informed, responsible approach to the tasks of consuming and making images in times of conflicts.

In conversation with Eugenie Shinkle

“But Petraitis’ project takes machine learning at its word, at least to begin: he examines its learning capacities, both by measuring its progress over time, but also by permitting a direct relation to be drawn between the image and its reading – a semiotic act, in which we as viewers can participate, comparing the caption to our own understanding. And yet we might sense that Petraitis also asks a more complex and serious question than this: if we are going to entrust a lot of our decisions to devices and software, then shouldn’t we know what and how they think?”
