Launch of a new issue of the journal Periskop: #31 Photography NOW

Photography as a medium and research topic has always crossed the borders of disciplines, which is both a strength and a weakness. Because what discipline is then committed to photography? If all disciplines can ’speak of’ photography we stand the risk that no one really does. We need to develop a language to ‘speak photography’, and for that reason we need to take Photography Studies seriously as an important part of the field of Art history and Visual/Modern culture.

 

New research on photography

Photography NOW presents new Danish research on photographers and photography; it throws light on overlooked practices and artists and it includes insightful contributions on contemporary photographers working with activist, material, eco-critical and documentary practices. An overarching interest that moves across the contributions is the representation of photography in art institutions – how it has developed and where we stand now.

At the event the theme issue will be introduced by the editors and selected articles will be presented by the authors as examples of new Danish research on photography and photographers. The short presentations will be in Danish.
