With Dr.Franziska Kunze, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich



'Writing and Talking about Photography' (I) + 'Artistic Photography & Market' (II)

With: Dr. Franziska Kunze

@franziska__kunze, Head of Collection Photography and Time-Based Media at the @pinakothekdermoderne in Munich, talked to us on 01.09.2021.

In the first half-hour we talked about photography as a variety of languages with accents and dialects, the difference between "talking about" and "talking to" photography. As well as about Franziska's work as a writer.

In the second 30 minutes, she answered our questions about her parameters for buying works, whether museums also resell works, and the difference between market and cultural value of a work.

An additional guest for the last 15 minutes was the conservator @jnmrsbrg, who added her perspective to Franziska's remarks on the proper preservation of photography and time-based media.
