Abstract or Description

'Co-existence' is a one-day symposium which brings together photographers, scholars and writers to explore specific aspects of the social fabric of the modern European city, particularly in a context of economic precarity and social fluidity. Like many contemporary European cities, Barcelona presents a dynamic and mobile arena for co-existence, between diverse groups, whether citizens and migrants, or newcomers and rooted populations. In this symposium photographers, writers and academics present a diverse programme of talks and reflections which explore the role that photography and urbanism play in establishing and questioning experiences of belonging and identity in the city.
