Copy, archive, signature : a conversation on photography by Jacques Derrida( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book makes available for the first time in English--and for the first time in its entirety in any language--an important yet little-known interview on the topic of photography that Jacques Derrida granted in 1992 to the German theorist of photography Hubertus von Amelunxen and the German literary and media theorist Michael Wetzel. Their conversation addresses, among other things, questions of presence and its manufacture, the technicity of presentation, the volatility of the authorial subject, and the concept of memory. Derrida offers a penetrating intervention with regard to the distinctive nature of photography vis-à-vis related technologies such as cinema, television, and video. Questioning the all-too-facile divides between so-called old and new media, original and reproduction, analog and digital modes of recording and presenting, he provides stimulating insights into the ways in which we think and speak about the photographic image today. Along the way, the discussion fruitfully interrogates the question of photography in relation to such key concepts as copy, archive, and signature. Gerhard Richter introduces the volume with a critical meditation on the relationship between deconstruction and photography by way of the concepts of translation and invention. Copy, Archive, Signature will be of compelling interest to readers in the fields of contemporary European critical thought, photography, aesthetic theory, media studies, and French Studies, as well as those following the singular intellectual trajectory of one the most influential thinkers of our time

Notation : Kalkül und Form in den Künsten( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Notation. Calculation and Form in the Arts' is dedicated to the multifaceted spectrum of artistic process existing between concept and work. The exhibition places works from all areas of art from 1900 until today in relation to one another: sign systems in literature, music, painting, choreography, architecture, photography, film and in media art. Over 450 positions by more than 100 artists and drawn from international collections, the ZKM and the archive of the Academy of the Arts are to be presented. The show will be on display at the ZKM from mid February, 2009. During the 20th century, artists have repeatedly made visible new realities through the connection between scientific calculation and artistic form. Morphic resonances, serial structures and sound waves: Modernity has rediscovered the intellectual aspect of existence as a field of research for art. John Cage, Etienne-Jules Marey and Walter Benjamin, Edgard Varese and Iannis Xenakis, Mary Wigman and Robert Walser, Oskar Fischinger and Marcel Broodthaers, Allan McCollum and Mel Bochner, and Pierre Boulez: 20th century artists have designed fields of relations in notations, (in the words of Gyorgy Ligeti) either as directions for play, as means of communication or as an autonomous work

Pandora's box : Jan Dibbets on another photography by Jan Dibbets( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in French and English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Musée d'Art Moderne has called on Jan Dibbets whose own contribution to Conceptual art was decisive for a reinterpretation of the history of photography from its invention up to the present day. Rejecting a conventional approach in what is his first venture into curating, Dibbets sets out to pursue the line he has been following since the 1960s ... Jan Dibbets has addressed this project radically. For him the power of the photographic medium lies in its specific characteristics and technical possibilities, rather than in its content and subject matter. At odds with the ongoing institutionalisation of the documentary image, he quotes Duchamp's reply to a question from Stieglitz in 1922: 'You know exactly what I think about photography. I would like to see it make people despise painting until something else will make photography unbearable'. ('Can a Photograph Have the Significance of Art', MSS, no. 4, December 1922, New York). Breaking with the standard museum codes while adhering to a more or less chronological framework, the exhibition investigates the nature of the photograph in the digital age and photography's relationships with the visual arts. Although the discipline quickly became a competitor for painterly realism think Ingres it is the scientifically oriented photographers of the 19th century who emerge here as the true visionaries, paving the way for entire output of the 20th century. Nicéphore Niépce, Gustave Le Gray, Etienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge are on show here, alongside other photographers less well known but for Dibbets just as crucial including Wilson A. Bentley and Etienne Léopold Trouvelot. Their direct successors are Karl Blossfeldt, Man Ray, Alexander Rodchenko, Paul Strand and Berenice Abbot in a line that continues on to Bruce Nauman. As an apologia for photography's reproducibility, the 'Pandora's Box' the discipline represents for Dibbets is a recipe for total freedom: side by side he shows two similar images, or a positive and its negative, or a copy of a famous work made by a later photographer. The high point of the exhibition is a selection of photographs by contemporary artists among them Thomas Ruff, James Welling, Wade Guyton, Seth Price whose recourse to digital technology compels an extension of the concept of what Markus Kramer calls the "photographic object"--[]
