As part of the Paris Photo Platform 2013, Chantal Pontbriand (Art Critic and Independent Curator, Founder of Pontbriand W.O.R.K.S. [We_Others and myself_Research_Knowledge_Systems]) welcomed Georges Didi-Huberman (Philosopher, Art historian and Professor at EHESS, Paris) on Saturday, November 16.

View the footage of their conversation about photography and its limits, its links with painting, the notion of archive and "encyclopedic fanaticism".

(Discussion synchronized from French, 60 minutes)

The Platform was organized this year around three lines corresponding to the state of thinking and practices that provoke debate in the world of art and photography today:
- Photography challenged by the world
- An encyclopedic fantasy
- Photography, Painting, limits?
