Moschovi, Alexandra (2022) A Gust of Photo-Philia: Photography in the Art Museum. In: Faculty of Recorded Media Arts, Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta, the Indonesia Photography Society and the Indonesian Photography Study Program Association, Indonesia, 21 Jan 2022, Online. (Unpublished)

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Keynote)

They also point to the fact that ‘Photography’ as a default term has had many different institutional interpretations. So, what is photography’s place in the museum now that ‘We are all photographers’ and what is its future?
