The lecture tries to understand the subject „Between Certainty and Uncertainty“ as an internal structure or the essence of photography itself. Based on the consideration of different single works from contemporary artists, photography will be reflected in its internal aspects – centrally in the specific relation between reference and imagination – and then in the ambivalences precisely connected with these aspects: ambivalences, which are important for the production and reception of photography as a social and critical art. The perspective of the lecture can be formulated as a question: Does the digitization concern photography in its internal structure – or does the outrageous character of single photos resist even against the digital neutralization of photography.
