In the CuBO.X

Within the framework of the CuBOX Viviana intends to open the dialogue and the views around Preuss's archive and use the space as a place for discussion and multiplication of her readings. From a series of dialogues with others, it seeks to generate discussions regarding the disciplinary frameworks that are created around the image, and to ask, how to read the archive from the history of photography, the history of art, visual anthropology, Or ethnic studies? Why does an ethnographic image belong or not to the world of the history of photography? How do discourses, categories, meanings vary, according to those disciplinary frameworks?
