📒Photography Between Poetry And Politics ✍ Hilde van Gelder
✏Photography between Poetry and Politics Book Summary : Lieven 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.

📒Why Photography Matters As Art As Never Before ✍ Michael Fried
✏Why Photography Matters as Art as Never Before Book Summary : From the late 1970s onward, serious art photography began to be made at large scale and for the wall. Michael Fried argues that this immediately compelled photographers to grapple with issues centering on the relationship between the photograph and the viewer standing before it that until then had been the province only of painting. Fried further demonstrates that certain philosophically deep problems—associated with notions of theatricality, literalness, and objecthood, and touching on the role of original intention in artistic production, first discussed in his controversial essay “Art and Objecthood” (1967)—have come to the fore once again in recent photography. This means that the photographic “ghetto” no longer exists; instead photography is at the cutting edge of contemporary art as never before. Among the photographers and video-makers whose work receives serious attention in this powerfully argued book are Jeff Wall, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Cindy Sherman, Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, Andreas Gursky, Luc Delahaye, Rineke Dijkstra, Patrick Faigenbaum, Roland Fischer, Thomas Demand, Candida Höfer, Beat Streuli, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno, James Welling, and Bernd and Hilla Becher. Future discussions of the new art photography will have no choice but to take a stand for or against Fried’s conclusions.
✏Found Sculpture and Photography from Surrealism to Contemporary Art Book Summary : Taking its name and its departure point from the 1933 Surrealist photographs of Brassaï and Dalí, Found Sculpture and Photography from Surrealism to Contemporary Art brings a unique Surrealist inflection to the rethinking of the sculptural object. This collection of essays questions the nature of sculptural practice, looking to forms of production and reproduction that blur the boundaries between things that are made and things that are found.
📒Re Envisioning The Contemporary Art Canon ✍ Ruth E Iskin
✏Re envisioning the Contemporary Art Canon Book Summary : Re-envisioning the Contemporary Art Canon: Perspectives in a Global World seeks to dissect and interrogate the nature of the present-day art field, which has experienced dramatic shifts in the past 50 years. In discussions of the canon of art history, the notion of ‘inclusiveness’, both at the level of rhetoric and as a desired practice is on the rise and gradually replacing talk of ‘exclusion’, which dominated critiques of the canon up until two decades ago. The art field has dramatically, if insufficiently, changed in the half-century since the first protests and critiques of the exclusion of ‘others’ from the art canon. With increased globalization and shifting geopolitics, the art field is expanding beyond its Euro-American focus, as is particularly evident in the large-scale international biennales now held all over the globe. Are canons and counter-canons still relevant? Can they be re-envisioned rather than merely revised? Following an introduction that discusses these issues, thirteen newly commissioned essays present case studies of consecration in the contemporary art field, and three commissioned discussions present diverse positions on issues of the canon and consecration processes today. This volume will be of interest to instructors and students of contemporary art, art history, and museum and curatorial studies.
