This study is an archeological investigation into the historically changing relationship between words and images. The result is an encyclopedia of interpretative techniques in which language functions as a model of thought.
Three periods come to the fore. In the classical one, grammatical structures are responsible for the dominance of describing and identifying activities. Thought about art departs from the idea, that classificatory systems (words) represent images. Art criticism is the form of interpretation in this period.
In the modern period time moves to the foreground. Now attention is focused on changes in grammatical forms instead of changes in constant structures. A hermeneutic form of interpretation comes into being: Art History.
In the postmodern period one realizes that words fail to establish a consistent relationship with visuality. New, semiological theories of interpretation now explain what images can signify.
This volume is of interest for philosophers of art and art theoreticians, as well as for students and professionals in both fields.

This issue investigates the meaning of photographic image for contemporary art. In Malraux' dream, photography offers the ultimate guarantee for a coherent presentation of art. However, as Douglas Crimp has stated, the appearance and enhancement of photography as a form of art among other art forms disrupted the center of the art world. What does this mean for art and philosophy in our time? Various artists and theorists will delve into that question: Christian Boltanski, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Jean-François Chevrier, Douglas Crimp, Jos de Mul, Mirjam de Zeeuw, Rineke Dijkstra, Michael Gibbs, Rodney Graham, Gerald van der Kaap, Karen Knorr, Zoe Leonard, Ken Lum, Hermann Pitz, Liza-May Post, John Roberts, Allan Sekula, Andres Serrano, Jan Simons, Beat Streuli, John M. Swinnen, Renée van de Vall, Hilde van Gelder, Hripsimé Visser, Jeff Wall, Ian Wallace and Herta Wolf.

At the core of this issue is the question of the concept of art. Could the task of art be transfered to philosophy, as Arthur Danto maintains? Or is there still a moral assignment for art inherent to Modernism? Various artists and theorists will respond to these questions in this issue. Among them are: J.C. Ammann, Victor Burqin, Don Cameron, Arthur Danto, Catherine David, Chris Dercon, Marlene Dumas, Jan Hoet, Joseph Kosuth, Donald Kuspit, Pieter Laurens Mol, Maarten van Nierop, A.B. Oliva, Frank Reynders and Haim Steinbach.
