In Defense of Poor Media | P-DPA

Published in Printed Web 3, edited by Paul Soulellis, 2015.] This text pays homage to "In Defense of the Poor Image", an essay in which German artist and writer Hito Steyerl (2009) speaks of the kind of "charge" that the poor image - an image that "has been uploaded, downloaded, shared, reformatted, and reedited" - acquires while circulating through networks.
