An artistic climate in which technological progression has forced photography to enter a (relatively) new phase of its development, namely the digital, the medium itself is faced with the possibility to re-evaluate its means and modes of production. Through self-critique and self-reflection it is possible for photography to do this. What is the medium-specific character of photography? Why do artists choose this medium and what forms of meaning can photography produce in a contemporary art context?
interesting sounding photo festival sugary photographs named after a quote by ‘august sander’ from late march in antwerp, belgium… oddly enough the website is very text based for a photo event, but the artists links provided a lot of new names for me… (many thanks to ‘anouk kruithof’ who sent me the link & is also taking part in the show)
