“Images: from images of what is invisible to images that cannot be seen”
Conference by Paul Dumouchel


“I am interested in how the production and dissemination of images using digital technologies (understood in a broad sense) and these technologies themselves transform our image of the world. That is the relationship between the different types of material images and thinking, or, if you prefer, between the images we make and how we understand of the world. Using two examples, that of images of what is invisible and that of digital images I try to illustrate how the transformation of images transforms our relation to the world. The 20th century as the century of photography will provide the point of reference we need to describe the relevant changes in the images we make.

Introduces Ivan Blečić.
