Following the enthusiasm about the seemingly infinite possibilities of digital image generation and editing since the 1990s, analog image production is currently also experiencing a Renaissance in artistic photography, as Ruth Horak observed in her contribution to issue 88 of EIKON. Artists who have embraced the supposedly obsolete technology, use it primarily to analyze photography as such by posing questions to the material, by restaging clearly defined production processes, or, more generally, by learning the craft and thus also finding out more about the current media culture (in contrast to many commercial manufacturers, whose production of analog cameras and darkroom equipment caters mainly to the nostalgic predilections of their customers).
A better understanding of analog processes and procedures via their renewed artistic use is also the goal of a research project launched by Edgar Lissel, which is currently based at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and is operated under the title RESET THE APPARATUS! The project examines especially the non-standard use of analog photographic and filmic devices, which is thoroughly probed by the invited artists and theoreticians in a lively exchange. The “artistic misappropriation” of instruments such as slide projectors, analog cameras or 16mm film projectors are then registered in an online database, which is to serve as a research platform for curators and academics in the future. In this issue (in our “In Focus” section) the project coordinators Edgar Lissel, Gabriele Jutz, and Nina Jukić give an overview of the different approaches to the research subject, highlight the potential held by the original photographic and filmic technologies, and provide a stage for the currently involved project partners to present their work.
I hope you enjoy our current issue!
