"Learning From…" Towards documenta 14

Lecture & Seminar

A lecture-seminar exploring the field of visual culture in the tension field between visibility and invisibility. Each lesson starts with "close readings" of images from fine arts, media, sciences and/or popular culture.
Together with the systematic exploration and discussion of the images, their backgrounds and contexts basic terms, theories, practices and methods are introduced as well.

Our goal is not only to reveal possible meanings of images and to render them with respect to related conditions of production, publication and perception/reception. Special attention is devotet to processes of mutual exchange, gains and losses, conflicts and negotiations between different areas of visual culture and other fields of cultural activity, as well as the historical horizon of current aesthetic and social practices.

Each term comes with a special thematic focus. The special focus for summer 2017 is dedicated to the recent documenta: "Learning From…" Towards documenta 14

For more info about the focus theme pls. see the German version.
