IBICT - Instituto Brasileiro de Informação em Ciência e Tecnologia




The research presents a survey of data about the documentary treatment of the photographic collections in art museums, after the incorporation of photograph in your holdings. It were selected, as case studies, the following São Paulo art museums: Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo, Museu de Arte de São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand, Museu Lasar Segall and Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo. The research is contextualized by compiling data about institutional paths for preservation of photography and about the process of assimilation of photography by art museums, evidenced from the second half of the 20th century. In the case of art museums, it can be seen that each institution traveled a trajectory for incorporate and documenting photographs. They currently use computerized systems and databases as methods of documentation and face the problematic of classifying and documenting the photographs of the collection in detail, because of the diversity of contemporary art that makes use of the photographic language and the photography produced in contemporary times. The variety of processes and techniques related to photography and hybridism between artistic typologies make of the documentation of photography in art museums a work in constant improvement.
