ku # 424 and a commentary for your consideration



Click Doubleclick - the title of a photography show at Munich's Haus der Kunst. Click, as in camera shutter, Doubleclick, as in computer mouse. The exhibition "...does not simply examine documentary photography as it is affected by the digital revolution; it looks at the very basis of photography, which is rooted both in the world and in documentary realism..." (from a review of the show by Gerry Badger in Aperture, Fall 2006).

One conculsion reached by the exhibition's curator, Thomas Weski, is that photography is no longer (if it ever was) a matter of simply making a simulacrum of what is in front of you, in the computer age it is "...not so much a matter of portrayal or representation of reality, but rather of an artistically well-grounded idea of the world."
