DONOSO MACAYA, Ángeles. Art, Document and Photography: Prolegomena for a reformulation of the Photography Field in Chile (1977-1998). Aisthesis [online]. 2012, n.52, pp.407-424. ISSN 0718-7181.

This article explores the discursive spaces of photography in Chile from the mid seventies until the mid nineties. Departing from notions developed by Régis Durand, Rosalind Krauss, and Jacques Rancière, it argues that it is necessary to redefine «the photographic» in order to, first, be able to rethink the divisions, uses, and values assigned to both «documentary» photography and «creative» photography, and second, reflect upon the irruption of the photographic apparatus into the spaces of the visual arts and of academic criticism from this period.

Keywords : Documentary Photography and Experimentalism; Photographic Field; Memory and Visual Representation; Mario Fonseca; AFI.
