Is photographic technology masculine? How does its history change when written from a female perspective? Can photo technology be gendered? Yes! When tech-savvy female artists bring digital and analog workflows into the picture, when they take the camera fetish literally, when they make 3D-modeled body fragments appear out of thin air, when they create autoradiographs with samples of radioactive pitchblende, or when they stage equilibrium studies based on Lucia Moholy. What images emerge when phototechnics is the subject and its authors are female?

FOTOTECHNIKA is a book that is artistic and scientific, theoretical and erotic, sensual and factual at the same time, with artistic and theoretical contributions on techniques of seeing, the camera fetish, reproduction, women and the early days of photography, role images in photo manuals, and much more. In addition, a look at media history shows what the relationship between women and photographic technology was really like and which clichés persist to this day.

The book is published on the occasion of the exhibition FOTOTECHNIKA II at FOTOHOF, Salzburg, March 30 to May 20, 2023.
