AKRAM ZAATARI. AGAINST PHOTOGRAPHY

35,00

Far from offering a historical account of the Arab Image Foundation (AIF), this publication presents the perspective of an artist, which is essential to understand the practice of the organization. Through Akram Zaatari, a founding member of AIF who played a key role in its development, the publication reflects on the twenty years of AIF history and the multiple conditions of photography, such as photographic document, object, material value, aesthetics and memory. Zaatari’s expansive work on photography and collecting adopts an archaeological perspective: it digs into the past, brings out new narratives and resituates them in the contemporaneity.
