Gwynne Fulton

Gwynne Fulton is an interdisciplinary researcher and filmmaker based in Montreal, Quebec. Informed by a long-standing engagement with the material practices of photography, Gwynne’s SSHRC-funded research examines the status and power of images of death circulating across spatiotemporal and political boundaries in our current “post-photographic” age. Her work assesses the ethical and political ramifications of photographic representations of violence and death in relation to debates about death penalty photography, drone warfare, and radical Black politics, while issuing questions about the function of state power in the adjudication of questions of life and death, forgiveness and pardon, economic and social debt.

She has disseminated her current research at a number of international conferences including the 4th and 5th Annual Derrida Today Conferences, Fordham University, NYC, 2014 and Goldsmiths University, London, 2016; The International Conference on Philosophy and Film, Lisbon, 2014; Mosaic Conference, “A Matter of Lifedeath,” Winnipeg, 2015. Gwynne holds an MFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University (2011). She is currently a doctoral candidate in Political Philosophy, Art History and Curatorial Studies at Concordia University.
