This seminar will address the intersections between image and word. Where does the image start and where does it end? When does the word end and when does an image start to emerge? Arantza Santesteban has been working with prison correspondence for some time. One of her key lines of investigation focuses on interpreting prison letters as a relationship between a world without images ("the prison") and another world that is saturated with images ("the outside"). She analyses the revelatory potential of these letters when creating images that cannot otherwise exist. The letters in relation to the prison contain a unique visual significance, as they are one of the few means of communication available to individuals. In this sense, the letter breaks a regime of invisibility, opens a thread of images (written or not) between these two worlds. Mari Luz Esteban is an anthropologist and professor at the UPV (University of the Basque Country). She is working with a variety of investigation techniques in the field of anthropology. In one of her latest studies, she works with physical memory and scenes. For this purpose, she invites an activist and militant to recall, through scenes, the experiences of the past, in her life experience as a militant. From this way of evoking, of narrating experiences related to physical questions, scenes arise in the form of an imagined image. But, what exactly is an image? What are the interstices between image and word?
