The project is focusing on the agency of photographic histories in the artistic process, the intra-act (Barad, 2007) between practitioner, material and history (historical references understood as technological, cultural, estetic (e.g.) conditions and how they have been used). The study will take its starting point in the educational context where students in different ways are intra-acting with historical references. The questions that will be investigated and problematized are: How does students relate to the history of photography (historical references understood as technological, cultural, estetic (e.g.) conditions)? Where in the creative process does the awareness of history of photography appear, and what role does it have in the artistic practice? The aim is to identify how photographic references (historical or/and contemporary) intra-act in the artistic process, and too problematize how these photographic references have agency in the idea of subjectness (not only a matter of socialisation) (Biesta, 2006)
