Abstract or Description:

Deleuze's seminal work 'The Image of Thought' addresses the impact of technological reproducibility on the work of art. In the spirit of both Benjamin and Deleuze, 'The Photograph of Thought' pushes the argument(s) into the realm of the digital and its impact. It places the photograph as the new expression of contemporary methodologies in the face of new materialities (ephemeral, distributed, artificial).

Additional Information:

Fragmentation of the Photographic Image in the Digital Age challenges orthodoxies of photographic theory and practice. Beyond understanding the image as a static representation of reality, it shows photography as a linchpin of dynamic developments in augmented intelligence, neuroscience, critical theory, and cybernetic cultures. Through essays by leading philosophers, political theorists, software artists, media researchers, curators, and experimental programmers, photography emerges not as a mimetic or a recording device but simultaneously as a new type of critical discipline and a new art form that stands at the crossroads of visual art, contemporary philosophy, and digital technologies.
