Under the title ›IMAGE MATTERS‹‹, the Photojournalism and Documentary Photography programme at Hanover’s University of Applied Sciences and Arts has created a platform for discussion about issues in photographic practice, discourse in the theory of image and photography as well as in visual and cultural studies. This dialogue will open up important new perspectives for both sides.

›IMAGE MATTERS‹ will encourage photographic discussion, host workshops and symposia and develop publications aimed at students and a specialised audience from the areas of practice, theory and research.
