Territorium Novum authors explore areas with special status. They freely
move between the borders of contexts and medium. They delve deep into
images, stick to its surface, cross borders of reality and representation,
re-evaluate copies and originals, do the mapping, hunting, registering
and redefinition. They are privileged individuals who introduce their own
new “laws”, ways of seeing, and methods of illustrating on
newly formed territories.
Migrations are inextricably connected with annexation, with entering new territories, going into new contexts. They assume confrontation with a place, but also its transformation. Since its inception, photography as a medium has been closely connected with literal and symbolic annexation of new territories. It served as a cognitive, registering instrument, but also a redefining one. Often, it became a tool of colonization, and a photographer was the only witness of silent appropriation. What was seen, named and photographed, radically changed its status.
