Representations of Exclusion

Representations of Exclusion

Public Presentation in Anthrozoology Symposium, Iasi, Romania, 2nd of November 2023

From a semantic, rhetorical, and allegorical perspective, photography is also constituted as an enlisting form of representation into a certain ideological topos, having a distinct tone, played in a particular discursive rhythm generated by more and less explicit intents.  I do not intend to impose the idea of photography constituting itself as a discourse of the sort. Yet it carries this “guilt” provided by its very nature, both of an aesthetic and ideological engineering sort. Because photography is a delineation form of representation, it is exposed to some biopolitics risks. The symbolic programming, ideological authorization, and validation of epistemic relationships of fiction with reality are just a few of these risks. These risks can have even worse effects in terms of biopolitics.
