In this new text, Jae Emerling therefore argues that the most insightful way to approach the histories of photography is to address simultaneously the key events. Jae Emerling.

This passage has nothing to do with allusion or unconscious stylistic filiation. I argue that to think artistic re-search with a fidelity to the specificity of our own episteme requires us to understand that an artwork is what it does: These passages are always untimely because they are aleatory, unhistorical lines of time that flow within the present.
I define transmissibility—as the mode of an artwork, as the creative aim of artistic re-search—as such a passage that traces the lines of time that compose the present. Transmissibility has nothing to do with representing the cultural past.
Instead, it has everything to do with a temporal deframing of any cultural representation and with the composition of other modes of culture within the present.
For me, this is what makes artistic re-search vital and creative.
Photography: History and Theory by Jae Emerling
Artistic re-search is a futural force that creates ontological, ethical, and epistemic effects, if only because it reveals how and why varying temporalities are enfolded within each supposedly discrete tense. Transmissibility shuttles us between aesthetic labour creation, research and cultural reception historiography, criticism, encountering an artwork.
Following Deleuze, the eemrling here is to conceive of artistic research as a two-fold, simultaneous operation: This two-fold, simultaneous operation occurs because an artwork is not simply an object but is critical thought, a futural material-force.
This function of deframing and composing occurs in time, opening us to a multiplicity of temporal durations the internal difference of time itself. As jar, it opens us to unforeseen, affective events—material encounters that force us to think and to become.
