The call for papers is now open for the International Symposium Daniel Blaufuks: Routes and Intersections, an interdisciplinary event organised by the research group 'Cinema and the World - Studies on Space and Cinema', to be held at the Centre for Comparative Studies in the University of Lisbon School of Arts and Humanities, Lisbon, Portugal, on 9 and 10 October 2017. With works that range from large-scale photography, to photobooks and photo essays, to video, film and installations, Daniel Blaufuks has proven himself to be one of the most prolific artists in Portuguese contemporary art. The artist has been deeply engaged with questions surrounding the Holocaust, exile, memory and postmemory. Photography, film and archival material have been the tools chosen for his excavations. Nonetheless, it is impossible to overlook the influence of literature in the artist’s work. In this symposium we aim to reflect on two pervading lines in Blaufuks's work: routes and intersections. In Routes we will explore travel through space — be it in extreme conditions such as exile, but also as a way of discovering locations, or travelling through cities — and travel through memory — lived memory, memory that permeates generations, constructed and/or mediated memory. In Intersections the focus will be on the artist's interweaving of multiple media in the construction of expandable projects — including Terezín (2007), All the Memory of the world, part one (2014), Attempting Exhaustion (2016), amongst others — and on the relevance literature takes in his projects.The event's working languages will be English and  Portuguese.
