Public Lecture 12: nova Milne

nova Milne (b. Sydney & Toronto) have been collaborating informally since a chance encounter as teenagers in 1998, and more formally since they first started exhibiting/performing with the generic conjunctive title Ms&Mr in 2003.

Through a range of forms including large-scale video assemblages and installations, nova Milne create moments of connection or disruption that often take the form of an abstract encounter across the breach of time. Often performing through and with archival material, they unleash an occult potential in recombining anachronistic elements. Their amorous process invents a decentered point of view and the question of inter-subjectivity forms an ongoing existential curiosity within their practice.

“Repetition and Difference: The Dissemination of Photography”

Although seldom engaged in published histories of photography, reproducibility is a key element of this medium’s identity. Among other effects, it allows photographic images to be widely circulated, but it also gives the same image the capacity to come in many different looks, sizes, and formats. It also makes it possible for an image to appear in many places at once and to exist simultaneously at many different points of time. Equally complicated is the way its capacity for reproducibility ties photography to the processes and social implications of capitalist mass production, making any study of its effects an unavoidably political issue. This paper will survey some of these effects in order to suggest a different way of imagining photography’s history.

Professor Geoffrey Batchen teaches art history at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, specializing in the history of photography. His books include Burning with Desire: The Conception of Photography (1997), Each Wild Idea: Writing, Photography, History (2001), Forget Me Not: Photography and Remembrance (2004), William Henry Fox Talbot (2008) and Suspending Time: Life, Photography, Death (2010). He has also edited Photography Degree Zero: Reflections on Roland Barthes’s Camera Lucida (2009) and co-edited Picturing Atrocity: Photography in Crisis (2012).
