    Is Photography Over?

    Hi all,

    I already posted this yesterday in another thread, but I think it deserves its own place.

    The San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art (SFMOMA) seems to have had an interesting big panel discussion last year with the above title spanning two days , and including some interesting people from the world of photography and art, for example a couple of curators of major museums in the US, speaking about photography and its recent changes.

    Although I have just scratched the surface, and listened the first hour, there are some really interesting and entertaining musings being made by these people... Despite a total of a few hours for all the videos (you can listen to it without image like an MP3, the talking does the job), it seems well worth the watch / listening time.

    As the introduction text says:

    "Given the nature of contemporary art practice, the condition of visual culture, the advent of new technologies, and many other factors, what is at stake today in seeing something as a photograph? What is the value of continuing to speak of photography as a specific practice or discipline? Is photography over? In April 2010, SFMOMA convened a range of major thinkers and practitioners to write brief responses to this question and to convene for a two-day summit on the state of the medium."

    http://www.sfmoma.org/multimedia/videos/421
    http://www.sfmoma.org/multimedia/videos/420

    Video links are in the proper order for viewing, ignore the mix up of 420 and 421, this order is right according to the video titles.

    Enjoy!

    I especially had to laugh at the "Spanish pig" comparison / analogy ("Photography is the pig") in part 2 (video 418) of day 1.

    Which one? I've tried them all, and I can access all?

    Maybe it is a temporary "hiccup" of your internet connection (or to many APUG'ers trying to access the videos on the SFMOMA site at the same time )

    You may be right Marco, I got a message saying this page doesn't exist with the 3rd or 4th link but it works now.

    It's worth noting that some files are around 280-300 mb, and so unless you have good broadband may take a while to download

    Thanks Marco, well worth a listen.

    With all due respect, Marco.

    I appreciate your time on this but I'm not going to waste mine.

    Over?
    Thank you.

    This sounded familiar, and I realized I had come across several blog posts about this last spring. If you are having trouble downloading the video, here's a link to their blog.

    http://blog.sfmoma.org/2010/04/is-ph...-finally-over/

    And this link has participant texts from the symposium. Interesting stuff.

    Thanks Suzanne, I've downloaded the PDFs. I'm still waiting for the first large video file to finish downloading, been 32hrs 40mins so far but that's a reflection of Turkish Broadband in general, in the UK it'd just a few minutes

    Ian , if you invest 30 dollars per month in Turkey , you can download 10 megabyte per second not minute.
    You are frequently throwing shit to Turkey per every two or three posts when you are living here.
    If England is a heaven for you , why you are living here ?
