The territory of photography: between modernity and utopia in Kracauer's thought
Elena Gualtieri, pages -

Abstract

Gualtieri maps the development of Kracauer’s thinking about photography, tracing an arc from critic of modernity in the 1920s to philosopher of utopia in the 1960s, suggesting Kracauer’s trajectory and photography’s shifting role as cultural and historical signifier. Kracauer draws on European modernist literary sources in his writing, suggests Gualtieri, thus rearticulating his understanding of photography, from modern mass ornament to trace of an immaterial world at the intersection between ideologies.
