Thinking about the (according to Walter Benjamin socialist; in his essay on the work of art in the reproductive age) authentic photography presented not as a copy but exhibitioned as the, digital, camera with the image available for viewing through it.

The breakdown of [all] distinctions has made traditional conceptions of identity untenable: e.g. [humans] cannot be named, generalized, totalized around a particular set of features—because she is fractured by differences (Western/ non-Western; White/ colored; rich/ poor; lesbian/ straight/ bi-sexual/ transexual; …) that cannot be wished away -> Solution: feminists should give up the dream of purity, naivite, innocence and origin-ality.
Donna Haraway (1985)
