#NosEstanMatando ‚Äď ‚ÄúIls nous tuent‚ÄĚ ‚Äď est devenu le cri des mouvements sociaux en Colombie. Le documentaire suit des communaut√©s Autochtones, Afro-descendantes et campesinos qui collaborent pour prot√©ger leurs terres et leurs peuples, en se battant pour tenir l’Etat responsable.

FRONTERA INVISIBLE est la vraie histoire de communaut√©s expuls√©es par la course des grands propri√©taires vers l’huile de palme. A travers les t√©moignages de victimes, le film urgent donne une voix aux personnes Autochtones et paysans locaux se battant pour leur terre en exposant les risques des politiques de biocarburants.

Gwynne Fulton is an image theorist and practitioner based in Tio’tia:ke (Montr√©al), in Kanien’keh√°:ka territory. She holds an MFA in Cinema and is currently a PhD Candidate in Political Philosophy and Visual Cultures at Concordia University.

This event is part of Post Image Cluster Member Gwynne Fulton’s ongoing research on the global circulation of images and their role in the formation of visual economies of power and sovereignty under contemporary necropolitics. Engaging recent theories of the image as well as poststructural and critical race theories, her doctoral research examines the imbrication of operative images in drone warfare, bystander recordings of extrajudicial police killings, and death penalty photography to address questions of violence, witnessing, spectatorship, and modes of resistance.

Fulton is a member of the Post-Image Lab at Milieux Institute and a member of the Board of Directors at Dazibao, in Montreal. In 2016-2017, she was a Visiting Doctoral Researcher at Villanova University in Philadelphia. As a Curatorial and Research Fellow at Slought Foundation, she assisted with the development of Slought’s Mediatheque space and co-organized screenings about the carceral state, the geopolitics of oceans, and trajectories of illegalized migration in the Black Mediterranean. She is currently conducting research in Bogot√°, Colombia.

2019 Milieux Post Image Fellow: Eric Tschaeppeler

A Short Interview with Post-Image Research Cluster’s 2018-19 undergraduate student fellow: Eric Tschaeppeler
Year and Program of Study
Where did you grow up or where do you identify as your home place?
What interested you to pursue to images and/or photography?
What makes current image-making interesting to you?
Brought up in Gloucester, England. I moved continents four times but Montreal feels like home after having spent half my life here. Always as a bit of an outsider though, I think I like it like that.¬†Music was my first passion. I composed and performed with bands for 30 years starting in the Punk and New wave days.¬†Needing to give my ears a break and work alone, I switched to visual arts as they offered more support and more intellectual feedback/dialogue.¬†I’m in my 5th year of a Photography BFA.¬†Interested in family and social relationships and I am motivated by the unpacking of my own relationships¬†as well as our present Socio-political and environmental challenges. Even though we are inundated with visual data I still find we can be touched by images and that they can tell a story.

Photos made by Artificial Intelligence

For all those who thought the invention of Photoshop changed the way we read photos, think again. Petapixel just publish an article about portraits made by AI, photos of people who never exists. This looks like the end of stock photography, but for artist, the fun times are only about to start!

WEDNESDAY october 31, 2018 12.30-1:30

Radek Brousil was born in Nitra, in the Slovak republic. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, at the College of Communications in London UK, and the Photography program at Concordia University. He is currently a PhD Research Scholar at the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague, and an artist in residence at the Darling Foundry, Montreal. He lives and works in Prague and Berlin.

Radek Brousil often mixes objects, sculpture, photography and video in his artistic practice. His focus, however, is based on a broader investigation of¬†photography – namely, on its technical and artistic properties as well as its current usage and socio-economic implications. Brousil is therefore mainly¬†interested in displacements, gestures of appropriation, phenomena of misinterpretation and the non-existence of the “natural world” in the field of¬†contemporary cultural and economic exchanges.

“Office Space” Exhibition | Post-Image member Matthew Brooks


“Office Space¬†consists of large-scale photographs produced in institutional and governmental spaces. Using office furniture and decor as props, varying degrees of mise-en-sc√®ne are employed to create uncanny, empty sets. In these semi-fictional environments, the viewer‚Äôs sense of the real is disoriented through the manipulation of colour and form, revealing the tensions between reality and photographic representation. Through these obsessive and neurotic interventions, the frustration, rigidity, and absurdity of bureaucracy is revealed and made relatable through a collective experience of office politics and interactions.”

Summer Lab Hours – Important Information


The Post-Image Lab is closed to non-members for the month of July and will resume operations and normal hours to students and non-members in August. Inquiries can be sent to but please note that response time for inquiries will be delayed as the coordinator is also out office for the month of July.

Important Updates:

1. Lab Closure

For the month of July, members may still use the lab but there will be no booking system available or technical support. It is on a first come first serve basis. We are well stocked with printing materials but if  you still run out of your favourite paper, there is nothing that can be done. If you do use the lab, please shake White and Metallic Silver ink cartridges on the solvent printer.

2. New VR Station 

There are a couple new stations at the back of the lab designed for VR research, which is being led by new post-image member Daniel Cross. Please don’t alter the placement of their setup. When the lab reopens at the beginning of August, we can rethink how to design the space for the upcoming academic year.

3. Welcome new members!

A warm welcome to new affiliate, student and faculty members to post-image! We are looking forward to a productive and exciting new year at post-image with several cross-cluster and interdisciplinary events in the works. Please do not hesitate to approach me (Pascha) about ideas you may have for events or questions concerning upcoming cluster activities for the 2018-19 academic year.

4. Upcoming end-of-summer event

We are hoping to have a meet and greet at the end of August or beginning of September at the Post-Image lab. This would be a great opportunity to share event ideas, projects-in-motion and new work among members. 

We will also be launching a catalogue of the 2017 print fundraiser to coincide with this event. 

More info on this event and how you can participate will be forthcoming in August.

Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing summer break. See you in August!
