Archive, Post-photographic, Jens Schröter Te text «Archive—post/photographic» by Jens Schröter looks into the conditions and the consequences of digital image databases. He examines the paradox of the potential endurance and mechanical impermanence of digital data, of the general accessibility of electronic image archives, and the actual limitations of their use. Not lastly, with the distribution of artistic, journalistic, private, etc. photography in the Internet, the issues of copyright protection and authorship gain new explosiveness; the extended availability of images also opens up the possibility not only of conceiving of new orders of images (i.e. beyond administratively controlled access), but also of testing them.
