Photographic and film images of situations of crisis and conflict change in terms of aesthetics and applications, thereby becoming targets themselves. On the one hand, image producers and the distribution channels for images have multiplied in the course of digital developments. This broadens perspectives and enables new narrative forms. On the other hand, it is associated with an upheaval of classical photojournalistic self-perception. It also raises the question to what extent photographs can still function as witnesses. In the realm of claims to truth, their contextualisation and framing create meanings and require relfection. “Images in Conflict” is devoted to the relationship between conflicts and their mediatisation; it focuses on current visualisation strategies and ‘image wars’.
