Photo archives and the idea of nation by Costanza Caraffa( )

24 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of nation is inseparable from its narrative forms. This book examines photo archives as containers of national narratives and photographs as purveyors of national {u0091}truth.{u0092} With their rhetorical power and presumed {u0091}truthfulness,{u0092} photographs, since their invention in the age of the nation building in the nineteenth century, have served in the processes of constructing narratives of nationhood. They have been employed to substantiate claims of national and collective identities, and shape hegemonic visions and colonial attitudes. Case studies, from Canada to Namibia, interpreted through different disciplinary lenses, explore how photographic archives function as control devices of the cultural and visual system of the nation
Photo-objects on the materiality of photographs and photo archives in the humanities and sciences by Franka Schneider( )

5 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographs are not simply images but also historically shaped three-dimensional objects. They hold a physical presence, bear traces of handling and use, and circulate in social, political, and institutional networks. Beyond their visual content, they are increasingly acknowledged as material "actors", not only indexically representing the objects they depict, but also playing a crucial role in the processes of knowledge-making within scientific practices. This has a historical dimension: most scientific disciplines rapidly adopted photography as an important research tool. The various material qualities of photographs thereby afforded certain types of uses in those disciplines. Specialized photo archives were founded as interfaces of technology and science and as laboratories for scientific thought. This book highlights some recent approaches to photo-objects and photo archives as parts of a dynamic and material system of knowledge. Taking photographic materiality as its premise, it analyzes the epistemological potential of analog and digital photographs and photo archives in the humanities and sciences. Issues range from the circulation and distribution of photographs, the construction of disciplinary methods through the handling and use of photographs, the formation and transformation of a canon through photography and respective hierarchies of value, to the arrangement, classification, and working processes in photo archives and other institutions. The series Studies of the Max Planck Research Library for the History and Development of Knowledge is dedicated to key subjects in the history and development of knowledge. It brings together perspectives from different fields and combines source-based empirical research with theoretically guided approaches. Studies typically present collaborative working group volumes with integrative approaches to research. The volumes are available both as print-on-demand books and as open-access publications.

Photo archives and the photographic memory of art history( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and Multiple languages and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays, originally presented at conferences in London and Florence, and collected here in revised form, investigate the phenomenom of art reprodiction, the scholarly use of photography and the institutionalization of photo archives. The main themes that link the contributions are the materiality of the photographic object and the archive as a site for scholarship in art, art history and other fields

Vita di Domenico Fontana = Das Leben des Domenico Fontana by Giovanni Pietro Bellori( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in Italian and German and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mechanik im Dienste des Papstes: Mit Domenico Fontana findet auch die Architektur als Kunstform ihren verdienten Platz in Belloris Viten. Die Vita des Domenico Fontana (1543-1607) sticht innerhalb von Belloris Lebensbeschreibungen als einzige Architektenvita heraus. Dabei schildert sie aber nicht allein Karriere und Werke des Tessiner Baukünstlers - vielmehr nimmt sich Bellori hier der Aufgabe an, die Rolle der Architektur am Beispiel Fontanas exemplarisch festzumachen. In ihrem Essay geht Costanza Caraffa diesem Aspekt vor dem Hintergrund von Belloris Engagement innerhalb der Accademia di San Luca nach: Welche Bedeutung wird der Architektur im System der Künste beigemessen, und inwiefern soll ausgerechnet Domenico Fontana als Vorbild dienen? Die Wahl eines vor allem technisch erfahrenen Architekten wird angesichts der aufkommenden Studien zur Mechanik im frühen 17. Jahrhundert verständlich: Fontana ist insbesondere für seine spektakuläre Aufrichtung des vatikanischen Obelisken bekannt, die er in seiner Schrift "Della trasportatione dell'sobelisco vaticano" festhielt. Bellori orientiert sich auch sprachlich an dieser und anderen zeitgenössischen Schriften und lässt dabei ein Bild der Architektur als einer in der Bewegung der Körper verankerten Wissenschaft entstehen
