Example text

In this way, although the critique of modernism by writers like Crimp and Krauss was a critique of medium specificity, and although photography was crucially deployed in the service of that critique, the medium specificity of the photograph was (and continues to be) crucial. For inasmuch as the idea of the medium is a fundamentally art historical one, what for many years defined the medium specificity of the photograph—its indexicality, its automaticity, the punctum, the problematizing of the artist’s intentionality—is what calls into question its capacity to count as an art.

Fried, in “Art and Objecthood,” argued that theatricality (of the kind that I have identified here with the punctum) involved something more than the production of bad art. ” What makes the punctum important is that it undoes the opposition between good art and bad art by treating all photographs as if they weren’t art at all and so assessing them instead in terms of their effect. The idea here is not that the evaluation of works of art is rendered subjective; it’s not that the Winter Garden photograph is a great photograph from Barthes’s point of view but not so great from yours or mine.

But maybe this has been a mistake. ”67 Unemployment is helpful here, precisely because it isn’t an abuse, because, from the standpoint of capital itself, it’s as much a feature as a bug. As profit margins have risen while the share of GDP going to workers has declined (people work cheap when other people aren’t working at all), it’s become pretty obvious that, for a growing number, having a job isn’t all that much better than not having one. That’s why it’s better to see the unemployed as marks on the wall than as people for whom we should feel compassion—our compassion is beside the point, not just because it’s useless (to them), but also because it’s mystifying (since we’re victims, too) to us.
