DFG-Graduiertenkolleg 2132 / Ruhr-Universität Bochum / Das Dokumentarische. Exzess und Entzug (DOC)

The graduate research training group on “Documentary Practices: Excess and Privation” at the Ruhr University of Bochum examines the theory and history of documentary forms from the emergence of analog technology media in the 19th century to the digital media practices of the present. The focus is on the question of what operations invest documentary forms with their specific authority and by way of what procedures is it possible to challenge their claim to representing reality.
