Description

Professor Vicente Rafael’s talk will investigate aspects of documenting the bloody war on drugs under the regime of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines. While popular, Duterte’s narco- and necro-politics has also called forth other responses. One example is the work of photojournalists covering the war. This talk will look into photojournalism as a form of advocacy and mourning, inquiring into the ambivalent effects of aestheticizing the images of those killed by the police and their death squads.
