Staging of postmodernism’s photo art history – On photo art practices, snapshots and staged photo-drama
An invitation for the collaboration between independent curator Maria Eide Bustnes and artist and/or art photographer for a photo series and artist photo production.
The snapshots of photographer and artist Mirjam Wirz are inspired by a close postmodern photo art history.
The photographer’s ability to stage, create content and place subculture as part of a photographic practice. American raga muffin’ and will, postmodern czarism, tourism and youth-rape-culture, is investigated as postmodern appropriation.
The photographer clarifies postmodernism as a follow-up of modern photography and its status as a private medium.
Photo camera is part of a personal journey in a private room, which, according to Mirjam’s snapshots, is generally predominantly socialized.
Photography from Pinterest shows an example of men’s and women’s interest both in creating and being a part of a critical stage setting.
Everyday norms can be used to create spaces that symbolize resistance and self-esteem. The artist as a photographer is a social investigator and is a role given by a social activity.
The proverb adopts popular cultural scenes from literature and film. The tradition builds a bridge between working class culture and upper middle class, and the middle class. In a social democracy, photography is an important “agent”, as the creation of “new photographic norm” and its reality. Modern and postmodern photo theory discusses how photography helps regulate reality and how documentary photography, despite its seemingly passive role, helps to influence and create reality.
It has to do with technology and science, and the power relationships established with new technology and with new knowledge. The social democracy’s culture is also influenced by the market economy, and how economy and consumption help to regulate what is included in and as part of an everyday economy.
It is therefore interesting to create a connection between sculpture, photography and staging. The problem binds the project against the central theme of late capitalism’s cultural structures, and its design language. For example, globalization, ecology, and knowledge culture. In order to understand the digitization and modernization of cultural landscape, there may be a need for focus on the relationship between thoughtful function and its real culture.
The project will investigate photo art history by practicing staged photography, and follow the aesthetics and fiction in Mirjam’s snapshots photo from 2004.
The production can be conveyed in the form of a photo shoot that can be presented as a collaboration between photo artist and curator in the exhibition format and as a portfolio.
The curator’s role in the project is to create a framework for production, and formidable of the project as an exhibition.
