Graduate in Theoretical Physics from the Autonomous University of Madrid.

CAP graduate from the Complutense University of Madrid. Master Photography at EFTI in Madrid. He was a founding photographer of the collective NOPHOTO, coordinator of PROJECT (an independent initiative that uses projection as a way to disseminate the works of young authors) and editorial director of the PHREE project.

He has developed projects for public and private entities such as AECID, Amnesty International, Madrid City Council, British Council, Casa Árabe, Ministry of Culture, El País Semanal.

During the presentation, Carmela García will make a chronological journey through a selection of projects, through which she will reflect on the idea of ​​"work in progress" or "work processes". All of Carmela's projects form a great body of work that constantly feeds on itself and continues to grow. They are both a means to investigate autobiographical and social aspects.

From the beginning of her career, she has questioned the images of women in society, investigating them and questioning the hegemonic gaze with feminist visual discourses. Through this positioning, she has built different artistic works in which women are the protagonists, showing us images that break the schemes of binary genders, offering more open, plural and flexible generic identities that open up other options of sex-gender interrelation. In her latest projects, Carmela García constructs subjective spatio-temporal stories unwrapped between reality and fiction from another possible world. Some projects developed as symbolic genealogies that follow the clues and ties that have united some women with others throughout time and space, of lives, behaviors, attitudes and individual and collective positions against the current of the prevailing ones.

These narratives show a visualization of ideas through an expansion of photography towards other artistic formats, such as video or installation, where Carmela García presents fictionalized realities, made up of data and information from documentary sources of different disciplinary origins, and data biographical, which then links, at the same level of tone and poetics, with fragments of visual and literary narratives.

His work has been shown in museums in Spain (Reina Sofía, CAAM, MUSAC, IVAM, etc.), USA (PS1 Moma), Japoń (MOT, Kanazawa Museum), Paris, Rotterdam, Copenhagen, etc. He has participated in international fairs such as Art Bassel, Arco Madrid, Paris Photo, Frieze, etc.

Seminars

The PHotoESPAÑA Master in Photography, in collaboration with the Alcobendas City Council, organizes the following seminars during the 2021/22 academic year.

 

New processes for the production and distribution of journalistic photographs.
By Juan Varela

After the digital leap, infinite debates were opened about photography and the new uses and challenges that it must face. The objective of this seminar is precisely to check how new technologies make it easier for photojournalists to create their own digital platforms for self-publication and dissemination of images without intermediaries.: their work no longer depends on any company or institution outside of them, which gives these information professionals a new freedom. Their income no longer comes from the sale of photographs through news agencies or third parties (generally corporate media). They also do not depend on advertising, but on crowdfunding campaigns and / or online subscribers to these platforms, also converted into multimedia laboratories in which the still image is combined with audio, video, text and web design, resulting in interactive reports in which the limits of photojournalistic narration are explored.
