Migration as Agitation – The Photographic Beyond the Image

The essays in this issue direct their focus towards intermedial, as well as interpictorial, forays along the borderlines of the photographic and examine the potentials inherent to these explorations: for example, their ability to theorize about photography beyond dual conceptual systems, to shift fixed geographic and media-specific notions of delimitation, or to dynamize (re)orderings of photographic images – not least in the field of the arts.
