Event description

Description

Family Ties Network is a research group of artists, filmmakers and writers who explore memory, space, place and the family in photography and moving image. We are interested in and investigate a range of issues, encompassing the visual representation of family memories, the family album, oral history, bereavement, displacement, estrangement and the family home.

The Family Ties Network: Transnational Family - Research Seminar is a one-day research symposium exploring the overlaps between personal and cultural interrogation of transnational identities through familial representations. This is our first event in the west-midlands, hosted in association with the VAR research centre for Art and Cultural Memory, at Coventry University. We aim to host an exiting event that looks at transnational family from different conceptual perspectives. We have invited four artist/researchers to talk about their practice in the context of Transnational Family.
