Photographs are not only images, but also historically shaped
three-dimensional objects. They hold a physical presence, bear traces
of handling and use and circulate in social, political and
institutional networks. Beyond their visual content they are now
increasingly acknowledged as material "actors" not only indexically
representing the objects they depict but also playing a crucial role in
the processes of meaning-making within scientific practices. Thus,
photographs lead a double existence as both pictures of objects and
material objects in their own right.

Most scientific disciplines rapidly adopted photography as an important
research tool to document everything from excavation sites, costumes
and artworks in museums to snowflakes under a microscope – through
photographs such objects of research, were detached from their original
surroundings, put in standardized and transportable formats, newly
contextualized and made comparable. Especially the material qualities
of photographs have shaped their adoption in the various disciplines by
affording certain types of uses. Inscriptions in and the handling of
photographs made "photo-objects" applicable to the sciences and
humanities. This way they could be classified, archived and thus
satisfy the positivistic demand for "objectivity". The formation and
definition of many academic disciplines is therefore not conceivable
without photography. These processes were encouraged by the foundation
of specialized photo-archives as interfaces of technology and science.
They were and still are laboratories of scientific thought, in which
objects of all kinds are part of a dynamic and material system of
knowledge, interacting with and reacting to each other – from
"photo-objects" in their various manifestations to storage furniture,
card catalogues, inventory books, reference lists, prints and
illustrated publications.

Taking photographic materiality as its premise the conference will
analyze the epistemological potential of analog and digital photographs
and photo archives in the humanities and sciences. Contributions from
all disciplines will be discussed from a comparative point of view. The
conference also aims to critically examine the conceptualization of
photographic materiality and mobility through such terms as
"biography", "itinerary" and "network" from a methodological and
self-reflexive perspective. Taking the material aspects of photographic
practices in the humanities and sciences as a starting point, the
papers will deal with the circulation and distribution of photographs,
the construction of methods through the handling and use of photographs
in the various disciplines, arrangement, classification and working
processes in photo-archives, as well as photographs in different
institutions (i.e. archives, museums, research institutes and
laboratories).

Part of the conference will be a workshop on the "Photo-Objects"
project.
