The Lecture ‘The Interaction between Theories of Photography and Contemporary Photographic Practice’ which Helen Westgeest delivered during the book presentation of Sema Bekirovic’ ‘Koet’, is now online.
In her talk Westgeest discusses recent theories of photography and the importance of the interaction between theory and practice. One of the issues is whether photography has a hybrid or chameleonic character since it can be part of entirely different mixed media works of art, such as the combination of photographs and text, photography in painting, slides in video installations, digital photographs in computer art, photographs in installation art, etc.
