Craup 18: Photomontage and Representation

coordinated by Anat Falbel, Frédéric Pousin, Andrea Urlberger

The representative dimension of photography has been called into question on several occasions, particularly in the 1980s. Photomontages used by avant-gardes, however, were an exception to this, as shown by Rosalind Krauss who considered them as narrative processes in
tune with the history of representation.

In the 1930s, photomontage was defined as a composition or montage of fully or partially cut-out photographs, which may include text, color or drawings, as can be seen in recent exhibitions. Since the first decades of the 20th century until today, photomontage has just as much examined artistic production as it has architecture, landscape, and the city. It thus serves as a rich subject in the contemporary image sphere, in terms of shedding light on the exchange between fields, and for analyzing transformations in the realm of history and representation. To this end, this current issue puts forth three lines of investigation:

1. Photomontage, Between Artistic Creation and Architectural Practice
2. Photomontage and the Spatial Debate: A Tool for Ideational and Historical Representation and Dissemination
3. Photomontage and Architectural Design

Proposals for completes articles should be sent by e-mail before 23 February 2023 to the Craup’ editorial office: craup.secretariat@gmail.com. Articles, whether in French or in English, must not exceed 50,000 characters, including spaces, bibliography and notes. For more information, contact Aude Clavel on +33 (0)6 10 55 11 36
