Contemporary art makes extensive use of photography. Photographs often form part of (multimedia) installations in which fascinating interactions are created. The remarkable thing about them is the way photography problematizes the concept of 'place'. The theme of place is self-evident. After all photographs are usually seen as referring to the place they were taken, but in many contemporary art installations this relationship is far more complex more
Take Place investigates this complexity and theorizes about the notion of place in- and the place of- photography in the context of contemporary art projects. In Take Place various scholarly disciplines (art history, the theory of photography, the history of architecture and social geography) and artistic disciplines (installation art, performance, architecture, and especially multimedia projects) reflect on this theme. The aim of this compilation is to offer points of departure for further research into the concept of place in photography and for the study of photography in the context of other media. more
