Curating Photography in the Networked Image Economy

From 1st December 2018, the CSNI researcher Katrina Sluis will be undertaking a Swiss National Science Foundation funded research project “Curating Photography in the Networked Image Economy” in collaboration with Dr Wolfgang Brückle, Lucerne University of Applied Arts and Sciences, Fotomuseum Winterthur, FotoColectania and The Photographers’ Gallery. The central objective of the research is to generate new academic, professional and public knowledge and understanding of how the networked image economy is transforming established models of curating photography and the production and location of cultural value. In doing so, it proposes to bring the largely disconnected fields of museum curating, social media curation and computational photography into productive dialogue.
