"Running Witch," 2014, Joshua Abelow


Excerpt from Towards a Philosophy of Photography by Vilém Flusser


Nothing can resist the force of this current of technical images – there is no artistic, scientific or political activity which is not aimed at it, there is no everyday activity which does not aspire to be photographed, filmed, videotaped.  For there is a general desire to be endlessly remembered and endlessly repeatable.  All events are nowadays aimed at the television screen, the cinema screen, the photograph, in order to be translated into a state of things.  In this way, however, every action simultaneously loses its historical character and turns into a magic ritual and an endlessly repeatable movement.  The universe of technical images, emerging all around us, represents the fulfillment of the ages, in which action and agony go endlessly round in circles.  Only from this apocalyptic perspective, it seems, does the problem of photography assume the importance it deserves.
