The initiative for a national institute of photography by the Commissioner for Culture and Media has reignited the debate on a place of photography in Germany. Does photography need its own locations, such as galleries, museums and archives, or is it just one medium among others in the existing arts structures? Or has the space of photography shifted to the digital world as its congenial counterpart?
