Dokumentarische Praktiken zwischen Journalismus, Kunst und Aktivismus
New journalistic and artistic narrative forms generate new perspectives for photojournalism and documentary photography, stretching and transcending the conventional bounds of the documentary form. This is seen very clearly in the medium of the photo book, but also in film, multimedia and the comic genre. Works building on a complementarity of evidence highlight the contextuality of photography, demonstrating how meaning can only be comprehended through a complex interplay of image, text and document. The strategies examined in this volume bring together journalistic, artistic and activist positions, weaving fact and fiction to reveal the constellations of power in the process of representation.
