Screendump #2 – on the Appropriation of Photos Found Online

In its second edition, Screendump examines photography in the virtual era by presenting and discussing the work of artists who appropriate images taken by amateur photographers the everyday snapshots posted online for very different purposes than those for which the artists eventually use them. Including works by Peter Mann, Willem Popelier, Joachim Schmid, Penelope Umbrico and Corinne Vionnet, it reflects upon how attitudes toward creating, disseminating and appreciating photos have radically shifted in the digital age, and how the act of making a picture is now accepted as habitual. Addressing how to comprehend the massive stream of online images is a key focus here.
