Â«ScopophiliaÂ» â Anniversary lecture by Nan Goldin
Tuesday, June 18, 2013, 7.30 p.m. Fotomuseum Winterthur
After her wonderful exhibition Iâll be your mirror sixteen years ago Nan Goldin returns to Fotomuseum Winterthur with her latest slideshow Scopophilia, followed by a talk. Vince Aletti wrote in The New Yorker: Nan Goldin âphotographed paintings by Delacroix, Corot, ZurbarÃ¡n, and Bronzino, which fed that desire, then paired them with pictures of her friends and lovers, creating startling juxtapositions â¦ The result is a sensational paean, at once ecstatic and elegiac, to love, sex, and sensuality.â
Still Searchingâ¦ A relational Theory of Photography
The writer, curator, and Associate Professor George Baker is our new blogger on still searching. His first contribution leads us on a wild ride from Zoe Leonard's âdark roomâ to Jonathan Crary's Techniques of the Observer and Susan Sontag's famous essay âIn Plato's Caveâ. Or in his own words: âIn the weeks to come, I will poke and prod at our possibilities for producing a ârelationalâ theory of photography, but also such a history of the photograph as well. I will consistently remember where these thoughts beganânext to my dear friend, in the darkness of Zoe Leonardâs camera obscura, pressed upon by the space inside and outside the camera, by the collusion of body and image one found there.â
