Upravené a doplněné vydání mapuje roli fotografie v současném umění od poloviny 80. let. Představuje fotografie 170 umělců z celého světa. Jedna z nejlepších knih svého druhu. Text v angličtině. From conceptual art`s use of the banal and ‘artless` snapshot to the carefully constructed tableaux of Jeff Wall, this book considers the full range of ways that today`s artists engage with photography to make art. Some artists, such as Sophie Calle and Erwin Wurm, use photography as a record of performances or everyday actions, while others like Yinka Shonibare and Gregory Crewdson stage invented scenes to tell fictional stories. Andreas Gursky, Thomas Demand and Rineke Dijkstra present a cool, seemingly objective view of the world, while Nan Goldin and Wolfgang Tillmans offer up intimate details of their private lives. For Luc Delahaye and Allan Sekula, photography is a means of creating documentary, while for Cindy Sherman and Gillian Wearing, the photograph becomes a repository of personal, social and cultural values in an image-saturated world. This new edition brings the story of contemporary art photography up to date with a new chapter on artists who emphasize the physical and material properties of photography, who use photography as just one component in their pan-media practice, or who experiment with new modes of dissemination. Featuring established artists such as Isa Genzken and Sherrie Levine alongside a younger generation including Florian Maier-Aichen, Anne Collier and Walead Beshty, The Photograph as Contemporary Art points to the durability, diversity and energy of art photography in the twenty-first century.
