Beschreibung

Photographs are not simply 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 increasingly acknowledged as material “actors,” not only indexically representing the objects they depict, but also playing a crucial role in the processes of knowledge-making within scientific practices. This has a historical dimension: most scientific disciplines rapidly adopted photography as an important research tool. Thereby, the various material qualities of photographs afforded certain types of uses in those disciplines. Specialized photo archives were founded as interfaces of technology and science and as laboratories for scientific thought.

This book highlights some recent approaches to photo-objects and photo archives as parts of a dynamic and material system of knowledge. Taking photographic materiality as its premise the essays analyze the epistemological potential of analog and digital photographs and photo archives in the humanities and sciences. Issues range from the circulation and distribution of photographs, the construction of disciplinary methods through the handling and use of photographs, the formation and transformation of a canon through photography and respective hierarchies of value, to the arrangement, classification, and working processes in photo archives and other institutions.

Julia Bärnighausen is a PhD candidate at the Humboldt-Universität in Berlin. In 2015–2018 she was an academic collaborator on the collaborative research project “Photo-Objects” at the Photothek of the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut. Her dissertation focuses on photographic and archival practices of art dealers around 1900. Bärnighausen studied art history and history in Berlin and London. Former places of work include the Alfred Ehrhardt Stiftung in Berlin, Das Technische Bild at Humboldt-Universität, and the Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture Known in the Renaissance, Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
