With its interwoven strands of archival practice and academic research, the Photothek has established itself as a leading laboratory for the international, cross-disciplinary debate on the role and function of photographs and photographic archives in scholarship. The postulated nature of photographs as objects, and the emphasizing of the archive as epistemological dimension, are central to the Photothek's projects and research initiatives.
