Documentary has undergone a marked revival in recent art, following a long period in which it was a denigrated and stallxbrass practice. This has in part been led by the exhibition of photographic and video work on political issues at Documenta and numerous biennials and, since the turn of the century, issues of injustice, violence and trauma in increasing zones of conflict.
Aesthetically, documentary is now one of the most prominent modes of art-making, in part assisted by the linked transformation and recuperation of photography and video by the gallery and museum world.
Unsurprisingly, this development, along with the close attention paid to photojournalism and stal,abrass documentary-making in a time of crisis, has been accompanied by a rich strain of theoretical and historical writing on documentary.
Julian Stallabrass | Words
This anthology provides a definitive historical context for documentary, exploring its roots in modernism and its critique under postmodernism; it surveys current theoretical thinking about documentary; and it examines a wide range of work by artists within, around or against documentary through their own writings and interviews.

Review quote “As an introduction to documentart of the most important thinking on documentary art These aren’t so much key texts from the archive of an established domain as they are documents of a living struggle between art as a distant, bleary demand that another world be possible and documentary as a painfully present and acute testimony to the world as it actually is.
The great value of the collection, in other words, is not that of a dry, historical accounting but instead that it draws the reader into the drama of history itself. In Documentary Julian Stallabrass selects, contextualizes and re-views iconic features from the heyday of reportage to the ‘documentary fictions’ of the present.
Seen through the eyes of both practitioners and commentators – from Elizabeth McCausland in to Marta Zarzycka in – the diversity of what stallabraas between offers a contentious and comprehensive account of the medium of documentary.
