Post-media documentary Practices


Catalan 13€ Buy

A fact, a happening, an event and a piece of news are not the same thing. To the extent that the news, obsessed with the very latest developments, also leads to disinformation.

The new documentary practices are no longer the exclusive territory of the professional informant. They are represented by artists, film-makers, novelists, visual anthropologists, amateur ethnographers and anonymous citizens who place their images in circulation. Unlike what happens in the dominant media, these documentaries superpose the moments of the information and of debate. They are ways of intervening in reality, a new activism of representation.
