In this ever evolving digital world we live in, our perception of photographic images and the relationship to them seem to undergo a remarkable transformation. We no longer experience photographs as physical objects which are kept in shoe boxes and albums, but rather as images which reside on screens and are preserved on the hard drives of our computers.
As our relationship to images is transformed, what are the things that are lost and gained from this transformation? Has the indigenous value of the photographic object become obsolete?
Join us for a timely panel discussion at the New School and get inspiration and answers to these questions and many others. Moderated by Mia Fineman, curator of photography at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the panel discussion includes artists Leslie Hewitt, Miranda Litchtenstein, and Mark Wyse.
The Obsolescence of the Photographic Object is a part of the series Confounding Expectations: Photography in Context – an incentive on behalf of Aperture Foundation, Parsons The New School for Design, and Vera List Center for Art and Politics.
