Exposed lives: dialogues between viewers and installations about family photography
Abstract:This article reports on research into visual communication in art education. At a theoretical level, it examines the typical features and use of the genre of family photography as well as its origins and development in the light of earlier research and literature. Four installations, or visual-pedagogical productions, were designed on the basis of the theoretical framework and exhibited. This set up dialogues between the productions and the viewers whose open-ended responses were studied to ascertain the kinds of exchanges that took place. A new model for analysing the genre of family photography was developed that could be a useful tool in art and education and for future research.
