Proposing an alternative history of the optical image, Picture Industry explores the materiality of images and the technologies that govern their reception.

Spanning from the late 19th century to the present with images produced for scientific and artistic contexts, Picture Industry includes the work of more than 70 artists and practitioners. But this is not a typical exhibition catalog; it goes beyond the exhibition, presenting an anthology of texts that reveal the range of methodological approaches to the world of images.

Picture Industry brings together essays by, among others, Giorgio Agamben, Cory Arcangel, Ariella Azoulay, Roland Barthes, Georges Bataille, Jean Baudrillard, Ericka Beckman, Walter Benjamin, Georges Didi-Huberman, Thomas A. Edison, Harun Farocki, Morgan Fisher, Vil m Flusser, Coco Fusco, Tristan Garcia, Octavio Getino and Fernando Solanas, Sigfried Giedion, Mark Godfrey, Kenneth Goldsmith, Dan Graham, Friedrich A. Kittler, Boris Mikhailov, Craig Owens, Erwin Panofsky, Seth Price, Siegfried Kracauer, Rosalind Krauss, Bruno Latour, Etienne-Jules Marey, Martha Rosler, Allan Sekula, Hito Steyerl, William Henry Fox Talbot, Gilles de la Tourette and Alan Turing.
