As she approaches the end of her time as a visiting scholar at California College of the Arts, British writer and curator Charlotte Cotton will discuss how her experience working with CCA undergraduate and graduate students is shaping her ideas about photographic culture. The lecture will also focus on the scope of her recent exhibition – Photography is Magic! (2012) – and the books Photographicness (2013) and the forthcoming publication, Photographic, which takes a broad view upon contemporary image making culture.

Cotton is the author of The Photograph as Contemporary Art (2004) and founder of Words Without Pictures (2008-9) and Eitherand.org (2012). She has previously held positions including Creative Director of London’s Media Space, Director of the Wallis Annenberg Department of Photographs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Curator of Photographs at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Marco Breuer (b. Landshut, Germany) is well known for his radical approach to the photographic medium. Breuer employs nontraditional photographic techniques that do not rely on the use of a camera, aperture, or film, but instead utilize a combination of photogrammic, abrasive, and incisive techniques to make marks and capture images. His work is in numerous public collections at major institutions around the world and is widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. Currently residing in upstate New York, Breuer has lectured and taught extensively, and received a Guggenheim fellowship in 2006.
