What does photography mean nowadays? Where is the photographic in today’s photography? How has the image, its distribution, its ease of access affected the medium? The Museum of Contemporary Art in Gand (S.M.A.K.), under the direction of curators Martin Germann, Tanja Boon and Steven Humblet, asked itself questions like these.
The Flemish museum takes the opposite point of view of other exhibitions: photography should be dead, photography should be out-dated, beyond photography! In two exhibitions, one until January 7th, the second in 2019, the S.M.A.K.is offering a restitution of the “photographic condition”.This goes beyond the medium and the technique, it adapts to technological change. Well thought out, showing Belgian as well as international artists, the exhibition makes sense.
