In this paper different philosophical approaches are re-examined in regard to the question how humanity appears in images. Firstly, based on Judith Butler’s analysis of the photographic frame, the determination of the images by the relations of power is addressed. Secondly, in the context of DidiHuberman’s comments on Pasolini and the fireflies figure as form of resistance, the possibility to resist against the enforced framing by taking otherness and its appearing into account is at issue. Lastly, referring to Hito Steyerl’s theory of contemporary documentary art, I analyse the of ethical aspect of the posed question. Multiple examples of contemporary Colombian documentarism as well as one case of art in the context of the Jewish persecution during World War II are offered as an illustration of the ideas presented in this paper.
