This talk focuses on the critical and historical entanglement of Goya's Desastres de la Guerra with the photojournalism of war. It takes Goya as a point of departure in order to complicate accounts of the nineteenth-century "photographic revolution," and it reflects on the way Goya's images and the history of their reception might help to illuminate the concept of aesthetic critique.
