conversation with Claudia Slanar, Belvedere 21 – The website and the possibilities of the archiv
The book appears
in „Edition Angewandte“, the University of applied Arts book series, published by De Gruyter.
The book illustrates
that supposedly outmoded, analog practices in contemporary photographic and cinematic art not only have maximum actuality,
but also critical potential. Using the example of artists’ practices that are motivated by the idea of the photographic and/or
the cinematic but do not necessarily lead to photographs or films, the book shows how, in multiple ways, the display tool—the
apparatus—can be explored, taken apart, reflected, modified, and newly arranged. The contributions that have also emerged
from cooperative efforts between artists and scientists focus on the required technical/material processes and demonstrate
that knowledge of medial difference is also socio-politically relevant.
