Event info

Family Ties Network: Subject Missing is the first Family Ties Network (FTN) event to be hosted at The Glasgow School of Art. It asks how can lens-based practices investigate physical absences of parental/maternal figures and move beyond current representations of the missing or the lost within the ‘family’? Guest speakers are invited to bring both personal, autobiographical experiences and distinct methodological approaches demonstrated in their recent work to help discuss this question. The event includes an opportunity for GSA students to show portfolios of work that also explore the theme of 'subject missing' within the family. 

The event is free but booking is essential as places are limited - places can be booked via Eventbrite

The Family Ties Network (FTN) is a nationwide research group of artists, filmmakers and writers who explore memory, space, place and the family in photography and moving image. Formed after the 'Family Ties: Recollection and Representation' conference (London, 2012) the FTN has since established a strong track record for producing innovative creative practice and research events throughout the UK.

Family Ties Network: Subject Missing is supported through the GSA’s Research Development Fund.
