Volume 1, No. 1Crossing Borders, Shifting Boundaries: The Aura of the Image

Published 1 December 2016


Issue description

Crossing Borders, Shifting Boundaries defines the global theme for this cycle of Sophia which conveys the interest in promoting a critical analysis on how image is a medium that, on the one hand, can cross borders and shift boundaries between different subjects and disciplines.

The Aura of the Image ensures the specificity of Sophia´s number that presents articles which have as one of their most significant reference Walter Benjamin and his concept of “the aura” for explaining how photography has transformed the relation between the image and its beholder, as well as addressing the idea of “the tiny spark of contingency”.
