Name, first nameAlina FrieskeYear of birth1994UniversityECALField of Interest / research fieldArt Direction in Typography / in Photography Title of projectThe GridAbstractMy research is about the ambivalent relationship with the document in photography. How is the photograph used historically in scientific exploration as the medium for objectivity ? Which role is given to the visual as a means of knowledge production ? I will study how artists within different time periods react to forms of scientific images, creating a discourse between science and poetry. In describing various examples of the photograph as a tool to map and classify, I am focusing on the claim for universally legitimate value and the concept of an all encompassing encyclopedia.TutorsClaus Gunti
