After a long period in eclipse, documentary has undergone a marked revival in recentart. This has been spurred by two phenomena: the exhibition of photographic and video work onpolitical issues at Documenta and numerous biennials; and increasing attention to issues ofinjustice, violence, and trauma in the war zones of the endemically conflict-ridden twenty-firstcentury. The renewed attention to photography and video in the gallery and museum world has helpedmake documentary one of the most prominent modes of art-making today. Unsurprisingly, thisdevelopment has been accompanied by a rich strain of theoretical and historical writing ondocumentary. This anthology provides a much-needed contextual grounding for documentary art. Itexplores the roots of documentary in modernism and its critique under postmodernism; surveys currenttheoretical thinking about documentary; and examines a wide range of work by artists within, around,or against documentary through their own writings and interviews.Artists surveyedinclude: Kutlug Ataman, Ursula Biemann, Hasan Elahi, Harun Farocki, Omer Fast, Joan Fontcuberta,Regina José Galindo, David Goldblatt, Craigie Horsfield, Alfredo Jaar, Emily Jacir, Lisa F.
