Book presentation

Armin Linke. Modalities of Photography

Armin Linke in dialogue with:
Matteo Balduzzi, Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea, curator
Hannah Baader, Transregional Art Histories, Research unit director
Costanza Caraffa, Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz, Max-Planck-Institut, director
Tiziana Serena, Università degli Studi di Firenze, History of Photography Professor

In September 2019 Armin Linke engaged international scholars in a performative seminar that questioned the nature and logic of archives, short-circuiting his artistic images with the cataloguing systems of photo documentation collections, such as those of the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz and the Istituto Geografico Militare. The journal presents the reflections and methodological coordinates that emerged during the day of studies curated by Costanza Caraffa, accompanied by a photographic essay by Armin Linke made within the institutions involved.
