The inaugural Temple Bar Photography Summer School takes place this Friday and Saturday, June 28 and 29 at Dublin’s Project Arts Centre. The two-day programme will explore how contemporary photographers are responding to this moment of uncertainty and instability in contemporary Ireland. The event further links in with the forthcoming group exhibition at the Gallery of Photography, titled Uncertain State. The accompanying text for the exhibition questions:

How is photography responding to the crisis? Uncertain State looks at how photographic artists are representing this period of austerity and uncertainty in Ireland. Their work addresses important issues at the heart of where we are now: contested and hidden histories, effects of the global financial crisis and the radically altered social and physical landscapes. The ten artists in Uncertain State go beyond surface readings to reflect the emerging concerns in post-Celtic Tiger Ireland: the treatment of asylum seekers; institutional abuse; sexual abuse; emigration; the legacy of the property crash; identity; disadvantage & marginalisation; and the legacy of conflict.

Such themes will be the subject this weekend and will include the following leading artists, academics, historians and writers:

Dr. Luke Gibbons (Academic and Writer, NUIM)
Val Connor (Curator, NWCI Legacy Project)
Helen Carey (Director,Limerick City Gallery)
