What’s Next – A Search into the Future of Photography
“In fact the question ‘What’s Next?’ is about far more than ‘just’ the future of photography. It is also about the future of a society dictated by visual media, of a society in which people primarily communicate with technological tools that have been developed and made into consumer products with incredible speed. It is about the future of a society in which every layman can and will be a photographer, sharing his experiences with newly made online communities, a society in which the experience of time and space have drastically changed.
In short, ‘What’s Next?’ is about the future of a medium and of a society in transition.
During the course of 2011 a series of activities involving a variety of experts will address the question, ‘What’s Next?’. Leading figures from artistic, technological and sociological fields are all asked to think with us and formulate an idea, a dream or a vision about what they believe the future holds. Based upon their specific knowledge, each expert will be asked to make a short, but inspiring statement on ‘What’s Next?’. You can read them here and then make your own contribution to the debate. This is your space and we hope you enjoy it.”
