The workshop also examined possible problems and solutions in designing the ‘Dead Images’ exhibition and set the course for the further architectural development of the exhibition.

The workshop was concluded with a roundtable discussion with Sharon Macdonald (Humboldt University of Berlin) and June Jones (University of Birmingham).
The CCP4 Workshop on Exhibition Ethics and Stakeholder Engagement for the discussion of the ethics and stakeholder involvement was held on April 12th of 2017 at the Edinburgh College of Art. CCP4 members discussed the ethical issues raised by, and related to, the ‘Dead Images’ exhibition and the work related to creating that exhibition. The workshop invited experts’ contributions and discussions (with June Jones, Henrietta Lidchi, Sharon Macdonald and Suzana Milevska) on ethical considerations in developing the artistic and curatorial positions of ‘Dead Images’ and the way these positions take various stakeholder interests into consideration.
On April 11th, 2017, a CCP4-internal Workshop on Exhibition Concepts Development concentrated on updates on the current status of the artistic production, discussions of the current curatorial and artistic questions, and plans for the further development of the artistic production.
