Konceptuel fotografi – Hvad i alverden er det dog for en størrelse ??

… har du måske sommetider spurgt dig selv. I så fald er her måske en mulighed for at blive lidt klogere på fænomenet, idet det irske fotomagasin Source Magazine i løbet af de sidste par uger har offentliggjort 3 videoer, hvor de beder forskellige notabiliteter om at belyse begrebet konceptuel fotografi. Det drejer sig om teoretikerne Sean O’Hagan, John Roberts og Lucy Soutter samt kunstnerne John Hilliard, Suzanne Mooney og Broomberg & Chanarin.

Videoerne er samlet under artiklen What is Conceptual Photography? på magasinets hjemmeside. Der skulle også være et audiointerview med kunstneren Trish Morrissey på trapperne, men det er dags dato endnu ikke blevet offentliggjort på siden. Det sker sikkert snart.

Her er videoerne og Source Magazines præsentation af de enkelte afsnit:

What is Conceptual Photography? – Part 1:

The critics Lucy Soutter and John Roberts talk about the term ‘Conceptual Photography’ in relation to the art movement of the late ’60s, Conceptual Art, meanwhile the artist John Hilliard, who was both described as a ‘Conceptual Artist’ in the ’60s and ’70s and is still making photographs today, explains his working method. For him conceptual photography would refer to work that is preconceived (rather than spontaneous) and contains ideas that can be retrieved and understood by the viewer.

What is Conceptual Photography?  – Part 2:

The critics Sean O’Hagan, Lucy Soutter and John Roberts talk about conceptual photography after conceptual art and what distinctive features, if any, conceptual photography might have today. After the original Conceptual Art of the ’60s and ’70s, work by photographers continued to be described as ‘conceptual’ but took different forms. Suzanne Mooney is a contemporary photographer whose work is conceptual. She interrogates the conventions of photography but welcomes ambiguity in her work.

What is Conceptual Photography?  – Part 3:

Conceptualism has sometimes been seen in opposition to other photographic traditions like that of documentary or reportage. The curator Louise Clements and the artists Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin talk about work that takes an alternative view of photojournalistic subject matter.
