A few years after the “digital turn”. the change from analog to digital production and storage of images. asks the Fotomuseum Winterthur in the exhibition Status – 24 documents from today about the current status. the status and value of the photographic document and the documentary. The term “status” used to have a positive connotation and marked a self-confident display of one’s own stand. one’s own state of mind. so today we sometimes almost anxiously ask about the “state of affairs”; knowing. that this is often uncertain. precarious and mostly in flux. This driving uncertainty is also widespread in the field of photography. The rapid distribution and availability of images and videos in the print media. on the Internet. on social platforms like Facebook. Google. Twitter or Flickr. have led to new forms of communication with documentary images. Often we do not know the authors of the pictures. don’t know anything about the ways. who left a picture behind. until it gets to us. How can these photographic documents be understood? how does the scheme of seeing work. Understanding. Discard or save in today’s multimedia environment? don’t know anything about the ways. who left a picture behind. until it gets to us.

Les Goddesses/Hemlock Forest. Moyra Davey. Bergen Kunsthall & Dancing Foxes Press.

Posted in photography, writing on March 21st, 2017
Tags: , , ,












































Initially known for her work in photography—which she has been making over the last three decades—New York–based artist Moyra Davey (born 1958) is also an esteemed writer, editor and, most recently, filmmaker, whose works layer personal narratives with explorations of other authors, filmmakers and artists. This book is based on two related projects that take form as text, photography and film. Les Goddesses (2011) collapses the lives of Davey and her five sisters with those of the daughters of Mary Wollstonecraft, the 18th-century feminist writer and activist. Hemlock Forest (2016) weaves references to Wollstonecraft, Chantal Akerman and Karl Ove Knausgaard with her own family stories. During the making of Hemlock Forest, Akerman took her own life. Her death soon engulfed Davey’s awareness, prompting a broader exploration of Akerman’s and her own biographies, amid more universal themes of compulsion, artistic production, life and its passing.

Jimmie Durham has an interesting theory about money: it’s a virus that’s using its biology, architecture and art to replace human nature with its own…

Nick Relph is tangled in the weave of a tartan. Kirsty Bell met up with him to discover his sources of inspiration, which range from his own closet to Ellsworth Kelly’s paintings, by way of DIY groups on the web.

In the last twenty-six years, Moyra Davey has photographed almost no one. On the other hand, she has very clear ideas about the role played by literature in her universe of objects and dust. Gigiotto Del Vecchio explored it with the artist.

Ten, twenty, or even thirty years ago, who would have thought that talking about art schools would become cool? Dieter Roelstraete has an astute theory about this epoch-making “educational turn”.

A two-ton asteroid is reason enough to set Guillermo Faivovich and Nicolás Goldberg to work on a project that incorporates scientific knowledge, socio-political history, and the inexplicable magnetism of an alien object. Johan Lundh talked about it with the artistic duo for PART OF THE PROCESS.

Laure Prouvost has a passion for arranging meetings in unusual places, and Francesco Pedraglio had to follow her through muddy tunnels for an interview about her work. Which lies at the border between surrealism and plausibility.
The Chto Delat? collective is inspired by Lenin and carries on the revolution through musicals. But can it keep political symbols from being co-opted by aesthetics? That’s one of the questions raised by Jakob Schillinger.
Běla Kolářová lived in the shadow of her husband, artist and poet Jiří Kolář, and yet her sophisticated, conceptual work, made up of personal objects, deserves a special place in art history. Alice Motard talks about it.

ARTIST PROJECT: Leonor Antunes.


For LOST AND FOUND, Jens Hoffmann traces the career of Marta Minujin, a pioneer of happenings and media art, a global artist ante litteram.

Barbara Casavecchia got the rare chance to take a look at his endless archive of useless images. As a result, through SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET, we too get to explore the terraced house in Chalk Farm, north of London, that belongs to John Stezaker.
