Martin Jaeggi will run the blog, until February 28, together with Elisabeth Lebovici and Carol Yinghua Lu.
The new bloggers of “Still Searching” will be Martin Jaeggi (*1969), an independent writer and curator who teaches at the photography department of the Zurich University of the Arts, together with co-Blogger Elisabeth Lebovici (*1953), an art historian and critic who participates in the newly founded research group Travelling Féministe, and Carol Yinghua Lu (*1977), a curator/art critic living and working in Beijing, who is a contributing editor for frieze.
The blog was launched a year ago by German photo historian and theorist Bernd Stiegler, and has counted on contributoers such as the Indian writer Aveek Sen, US artist Walead Beshty, Belgian photo theorist Hilde Van Gelder (one of my personal favourites) and Geoffrey Batchen, the photo historian and theorist currently working in New Zealand.
According to its makers, Still Searching is aimed at “anyone interested in photography and visual theory. This includes, but is not limited to, academics and professionals”. So have a look.
PS: Of course, Winterthur Museum also has another feature this January: The seventh edition of Plat(t)form 2013. Artists include Jorge Fuembuena (ES), Dragana Jurisic (IE), Romain Mader (CH), Erwin Polanc (AT), Peter Puklus (HU), Jorge Yeregui (ES) and Steffen Zillig (DE).
