Just as 95% of the known universe is made up of the currently undetermined material scientists call 'dark matter’, so too are the photo archives of the world. The Dark matter symposium will provide insights into historical photographs and photographic histories, and show how these histories in turn illuminate our present.

Hear from invited scholars about the development of photography in the antipodes, the reconstruction of histories here and elsewhere, and how previously unidentified subjects have been discovered through archival research.

True to the medium of photography, Dark matter encapsulates both the speculative and proven aspects of reading and rereading photographs. The symposium explores how photographic objects and their subjects can be interpreted across time, in order to facilitate points of re-entry and discovery.
