edited by amazing Anna-Kaisa Rastenberger and Iris Sikking, has finally been published. It offers different views on how the myriad forms of exhibiting photographies can increase our understanding of how images operate today, as well as what they do to us when we interact with them . After hard research and interviews with a group of curators, scholars, photographers, and artists based in the field of contemporary photography, this book aims to provide a great footing and principles for a wider discourse on exhibiting. It s a great initiative since I think we should never stop (re)thinking how (and why) we can present some artworks in today s digital age.
