Cari colleghi, riprovo con un semplice messaggio di testo, ecco il link al blog in oggetto e una breve presentazione.
Fotomuseum Winterthur: Still Searching - An Online Discourse on Photography
About this Blog
This blog aims to be a continually growing and developing Internet discourse on the medium of photography that features a multitude of participants; it is conceived as an online debate on forms of photographic production, techniques, applications, distribution strategies, contexts, theoretical foundations, ontology and perspectives on the medium. It explores photography’s role as a seminal visual medium of our time—as art, as a communication and information tool in the context of social media or photojournalism, and as a form of scientific or legal evidence. This discourse will be conducted by theorists, critics, educators, enthusiasts, users and also photographers. Still Searching is moderated by the Fotomuseum Winterthur and located on its website.
Still Searching is aimed at anyone interested in photography and visual theory. This includes, but is not limited to, academics and professionals. There will be six bloggers per year. Each slot will last six weeks, during which the “blogger in residence” will write five to six statements on a specific theory or aspect of photography—or on anything else he or she is presently working on or thinking about. In order to guarantee a lively and highly interactive discourse on our blog, we will also feature two co-bloggers who will be responsible for generating and promoting online discussion, if necessary.
The blog will be launched on January 15, 2012. The German photo historian and theorist Bernd Stiegler will kick off the blog (January 15 to February 29), the Indian writer Aveek Sen, (March 1 to April 14), US artist Walead Beshty (April 15 to May 31), and Belgian photo theorist Hilde Van Gelder (June 1 to July 14, 2012) will follow until the summer break. Geoffrey Batchen, the photo historian and theorist currently working in New Zealand, will initiate the autumn season (September 15 to October 31).
