Aims, contents and method of the course

Digital Media - Power - Imagery
The Construction of Reality, Visual Competence and Pleasure of Looking
The lecture series focuses on the discussion of visual perception as a process of creating knowledge, identification, emotions and reality, thus as a processwhich forms the basis of experiencing and acting.How is the viewer involved in the process of perception? How can the relationship between the sexualised and racialised perception of imagery and body experience be described? What is the role of our society 'visual archive', which takes care that our historical memory is not 'blind';? How does psychoanalysis interpret the unconscious and the desire in looking? The global expansion and importance of the enormous information and image memory of the Internet, the upturn of film, video, digital
visualizations, text-picture combinations in documents, websites, teaching materials
etc., imaging technologies in medicine and natural sciences as well as visual control
and monitoring strategies form the background to the questions discussed in the lecture
series. In this context the development of visual and digital media competence and
criticism presents an important challenge.
