/Still Searching’s/season opening has already past. Geoffrey Batchen is blogging 
now:

“The theme of my contribution to /Still Searching/ is inspired by Walter 
Benjamin’s famous essay ‘The Work of Art in the Age of its Technological 
Reproducibility’ (1935-36). Or, rather, it is inspired by the striking absence 
of discussions of reproduction and its effects in the literature about 
photography since this essay first appeared. So I guess I am searching, in the 
first instance, for the reasons for this absence, given that Benjamin’s essay 
has been made compulsory reading for a generation of students and is one of the 
most cited in serious texts about the photographic experience. But I am also 
interested in beginning to explore the ramifications of photography’s 
relationship to reproducibility for our understanding of this medium’s history. 
How has reproducibility manifested itself in photographic practice and 
experience? What have been the effects of these manifestations? What kind of 
history would have to be written to encompass these questions? The invention of 
this history—of a mode of representation capable of doing justice to these 
questions–is ultimately what I am ‘still searching’ for.”
