Vision & Justice: The Art of Citizenship

How do we “read” a photograph? What is the relationship between art production, culture, and justice? And how can photography, which has been used to shape notions of racial identity since the 19th century, be repurposed to confront stereotypes and deconstruct myths in the age of mass image creation? Find out in this interactive session led by Sarah Lewis, whose Vision & Justice course — based on her award-winning work as guest editor of the “Vision & Justice” issue of Aperture — has become one of the most popular offerings at Harvard University.
