STILL SEARCHING – An Online Discourse on Photography

On the Shifting Relations of Still and Moving Images

The art critic Martin Jaeggi is kicking off the year 2013 on our blog Still Searching with a discussion on the Shifting Relations of Still and Moving Images. 'This shift is not merely occurring on the level of recording devices, it also occurs on the level of digital display. … All of these developments result in an enlarged field, where the photographic begins to encompass moving as well as still images, where for the first time the term 'camera arts', coined in the 1970s by theorist and photographer-turned-filmmaker Hollis Frampton, starts to become a palpable reality.'

In his contributions for Still Searching, Martin Jaeggi is on to a sharp and very far reaching contrast: 'Despite their more or less identical technical basis, photography in the 20th century was a medium that was considered to have an elevated claim to veracity and authenticity, whereas film was the very epitome of artifice and glorious lies.'
