The Common Good

Knowledge is the common heritage of humanity. Alongside education, it is the driving force of our moral public consciousness and connection to society: the global, public, good. But what happens when knowledge and education becomes commodified? There is ample evidence of this commodification of knowledge today: the regimes of Intellectual Property Rights, the work of universities, think tanks, consultancy firms, publishing.
Photography is also an important component of this cognitive capitalism; the product that creative industries
produce is at the very foundation of how power is generated and regulated.

Photography can be a useful tool for throwing bricks at the State, but it can also surpass and transcend the State.
Its democratic achievement is the participation of all agents involved in the production of an image (the camera, the photographer, the audience, the photographed subject). To quote Ariella Azoulay “Photography remains part of the res publica of the citizenry,” she writes, “and is or can become one of the last lines of defense in the battle over citizenship for those who still see citizenship as something worth fighting for.” This citizenry is a collective consciousness of the republic of images, of where we all inhabit.

In other words, knowledge and education, to surpass their status as commodities, should thus instead be considered global public goods. The control, acquisition, validation, and use are common to all people, not as a form of cognitive capitalism for a few, but integral to our growth and sustainability as a collective social endeavour: the common good.

On Monday the 30th we will have a program around the theme ‘The Common Good’, within the academy.

We will start at 9:30 in the auditorium. Be there!

FRIDAY 3 NOVEMBER

Friday the 3rd of November the Swiss-based, originally Italian photographer Salvatore Vitale will hold a lecture. He studied Communication and attended International Center of Photography. In 2015 he was named among Die Besten 2014 at Swiss Photo Awards, and received a grant from Arts Council Pro Helvetia for his long term research on the production of security in Switzerland. He is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of YET magazine.

Photography is a tool to push for the agenda of the common good. The common good as in our accepted idea of what society accepts as good for all. With knowledge as the driving force of our moral public consciousness and connection to society: the global, public, good. Its use and control, acquisition, validation, are common to all people, not as a form of cognitive capitalism for a few, but integral to our growth and sustainability as a collective social endeavour: the common good.

Vitale uses photography to reveal what is used as power tools to control what should be the right for every person; to be able to seek refugee and protection. In 2014, Switzerland voted against mass immigration, Vitale has made work that is deliberately devoid of people, clinical in language and critical to one of the most heavily armed countries in the world. It is an investigation of a security system and the impact of a power dynamic that is clearly prejudiced. Photography is a tool and a component to regulate; what for someone is to protect our common goods, might at the same time remove them from others.

Time: 10:30 in the Auditorium
