The Unsettled Image
When was vision obstructed, space made ethereal, and the eyes shut by media that were supposed to in fact enhance perception? How much did photography’s failure in these regards contribute to the near desperate efforts to reinvent the medium as a new and different form of vision? And how did this productive tension impact other media which had studiously attended to photography as their model? These are the questions our workshop will bring to the radically unsettled photographic image of Weimar.
Andres Mario Zervigon is Assistant Professor of Art History at Rutgers University in New Jersey, USA. He specializes in the history of photography and concentrates his scholarship on the interaction between photographs, film and traditional fine art images.
An Paenhuysen is an assistant curator at the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin and a lecturer in the History Department of the Humboldt-Universität Berlin. Currently, she is working on a study of urban photobooks in Weimar Berlin.
