This coproduction by the Alliance française de Singapour and Lasalle Faculty of Fine Arts will present the collaborative works by lecturers and students on the theme ‘The Power of Image – The Image of Power’.

The idea of the exhibition was developed by referencing two images from the realm of photojournalism as a starting point.

Lecturers responded to an open call and selected a student(s) to work with, creating a work in any medium of their choice. The different sensibilities and practices result in a wide range of explorations examining the relation between image and power from diverse points of view: social, historical, political, Freudian, etc. Ultimately, the exhibition hopes to investigate the role of images as a ‘great lubricator’ in the power play at work in human society since the dawn of time.
