Reset the Apparatus! Retrograde Technicity in Artistic Photographic and Cinematic Practices Edgar Lissel Institute for Fine Arts and Media Art Since the early 1990s, the use of “obsolete” media and technologies has figured prominently in contemporary art. What is remarkable about this turn to the so-called outmoded is the sheer range of inventiveness with which “old” media are applied, bestowing upon them new and original uses. This engagement with the materiality and historicity of technology in general and photography and cinema in particular offers a way of (re-)interrogating the very idea of these media and of making manifest their inherent qualities.
