Documentaire nu! brings together opinions and ideas from both photographers and theorists on the subject of documentary. What does documentary actually encompass? Which directions have developed in the documentary? Are we still able to define the term, and do we even want to? Experts such as Olivier Lugon, Frits Gierstberg and Tom Holert try to answer these questions. In addition, ten photographers and artists, including Walid Raad, Johan Grimonprez and Allan Sekula, describe how they personally approach and apply documentary film and photography. Documentaire nu! really touches the heart of the matter and is highly recommended to everybody who is interested in the theory of the documentary image.
