Brighton Photo Biennial 2012 special
Agents of Change: Photography and the Politics of Space
Our largest ever issue documents and expands upon aspects of Brighton Photo Biennial 2012 Agents of Change: Photography and The Politics of Space, examining how space is constructed, controlled and contested; how photography is implicated in these processes and the tensions and possibilities this dialogue involves.
This issue spotlights each of the projects exhibited in BPP12 alongside newly commissioned writing and interviews giving a wider critical context. Texts come from differing positions, from academics photo-theorists, artists and activists - and a number of contributors straddling more than one of these fields. The magazine is intended, just as the Biennial, to provide a discursive and sometimes antagonistic space to forge new and provocative connections between practices and interests.
Commentaries are offered from Iain Boal, Ben Burbridge, Alice Compton, Katie Davison, ETC Dee, Bradley Garrett and Mia Jancowicz.
