Ways of Organizing

Ways of Organizing explores the politics of documentary through the ways that its circulation condenses a variety of economic, political, and social flows. We want to suggest a fundamentally logistical approach to documentary, one that invites readers to think of documentary as an organizational tool in order to place documentary’s subjects and settings, its images and viewers, and its texts and the spaces in which they circulate on the same plane. How does documentary organize social, political and institutional worlds?
