Photography Between Poetry and Politics by Hilde van Gelder
Book DescriptionLieven Gevaert Series 7Does photography have a hybrid or chameleonic character because it can be part of entirely different mixed-media works of art? Photography as a medium is faced with the challenge of escaping from its too-frequent use as rather noncommittal and "poetic" visual imagery. How best might photographers proceed to maintain the integrity of their art? A distinguished group of art historians, art theorists, and specialists in contemporary photography address these issues in Photography between Poetry and Politics. They suggest that by raising a critical debate on the internal workings of the artistic system itself or on broader social problems, photographers might be able to transcend both political and aesthetic concerns, and so revitalize their art form and regain its autonomy.
