BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) is a geo-economic alliance created in order to strengthen trade agreements between five nations based on their gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate, particular “national expertise”, skills exchange and natural resources. To date there have been numerous debates and speculations regarding its success. But it has created an opportunity to examine the implications for how five nations with varied historical, cultural and linguistic differences forge a common vision through economic solidarity. In 2016, the NIHSS (National Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences) in South Africa funded an initiative to understand the cultural impact and/or (mis)understandings, political access and impact “on the ground” (if any) of this alliance. One of the projects: Visual Methodologies in Cultural Contexts investigates how these relationships would be explored through visual methods organised in each location, around mutually agreed to themes. Images (and image-making) is increasingly central to modes of expressing research processes and outcomes across faculties and disciplines. Therefore, underpinning the approach is an interrogation of revising received certainties of western knowledge paradigms and reference points to include histories, experiences and image-making practices that draw from multiple positions and perspectives. This presentation aims to share some of the conceptual possibilities gleaned from the case studies to date in Brazil, India and China. Furthermore, the presentation aims to invite open discussion on how historical and contemporary power relations in representations might encourage collaborative understandings of image-making practices and more broadly, revitalise film practice to explore cultures across linguistic and political divides.
