Repeticiones y revisiones: el remake en la fotografía construida
REPETITIONS AND REVISIONS: THE REMAKE IN STAGED PHOTOGRAPHY
Fotografía escenificada; remake; arte contemporáneo; deconstrucción; originalidad.
Since posmodernism, photography theory has dealt with the idea that photographs can be understood as processes of cultural meaning and coding. In an artistic context interested in pastiche, quotation, deconstruction and questioning ideas of authorship and originality, the remake is consolidated as way of producing revisions of icons belonging to the collective imagination, and becomes a recurring representational strategy in current art photography. It challenges us to recognize what we see, to question how we see it, and to problematize how images give shape to our emotions and understanding of the world.
After developing the concept of remake, we will analyze its aesthetic, narrative and representational implications in staged photography, through the study of a set of recent artistic proposals that make use of a stock of preexisting images (specially from Painting), that then are reworked with new approaches that express a strong commitment to the present.
Staged photography; remake, contemporary art; deconstruction; originality.
