Critical Montage (Seminar)

14-täglich | Dienstag | 14:00 - 17:30 | 12.04.2022 - 05.07.2022 | HMS 139
Einzeltermin | Fr, 10.06.2022, 14:00 - Fr, 10.06.2022, 18:00 | HMS 139
Einzeltermin | Sa, 11.06.2022, 10:00 - Sa, 11.06.2022, 16:00 | HMS 139

Inhalt: This is a course in critical media production. We explore the specific affordances of moving images and sound to describe the contemporary world. We will ask how sequential images can be said to make a coherent argument? What are the new possibilities for expressing current subjectivities with the moving image? How can our media production take into account archives and video databases? Digital video can create all sorts of experimental associations, narratives, atmospheres, rhythms and stories. We will focus on treating moving images and audio as artistic materials to be collected and manipulated. We will learn how to move between free-form discovery and more systematic organization--working with video requires both. Finally, we will study how to gather and assemble media critically through several thematic projects. In addition to these current questions about the moving image, we will also explore themes in aesthetics more generally.

21st Century Images (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Robert Rapoport

14-täglich | Dienstag | 14:00 - 17:30 | 05.04.2022 - 28.06.2022 | HMS 139 | Hörsaal Film 113 on 05.04.

Inhalt: How has our understanding of representation, authenticity, and reproduction changed in our current culture of images? How has the idea of neural networks as image-makers entered our social imaginary? Now that we hear about machines beginning ‘to dream,’ how does it change our relationship to our own cognition? We will be looking at how visual culture comes to terms with machine learning—beginning with the post-war synergies of art and technology; we will track early attempts to combine art and cybernetics up through net art and into the present. Additionally, we will think critically about the social construction of meaning--How do images mean different things in different places? Now that machines are also making meaning and interpreting images, what is the role of interpretation?

Attention in the Contemporary Moving Image (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Robert Rapoport

14-täglich | Donnerstag | 14:00 - 17:30 | 14.04.2022 - 07.07.2022 | HMS 139 | in room 211/215 on 12.05.

Inhalt: How can working with sequential images make a coherent argument? What are the new possibilities for expressing contemporary subjectivities with sequential images? We will revisit issues of recursion and repetition in our attempt to refine voice and tone. We will also explore how current production relates to time-based archives and databases

BA Thesis / Colloquium (Kolloquium)

Dozent/in: Robert Rapoport

Einzeltermin | Fr, 24.06.2022, 14:00 - Fr, 24.06.2022, 18:00 | HMS 231/232
Einzeltermin | Sa, 25.06.2022, 10:00 - Sa, 25.06.2022, 16:00 | HMS 231/232

Inhalt: In this colloquium, we focus on forming an exciting and answerable research question for a BA thesis. We look at the relationship between coming up with a hypothesis and subsequently identifying methods to guide the inquiry. The colloquium is a process of discovery best conducted with peers. Increasingly the study of Digital Culture calls for interdisciplinary methods--you have a considerable amount of latitude in terms of your topic and methods. This disciplinary latitude means that it is critical is to choose a topic narrow enough to answer in a BA thesis. For this reason, much of the feedback given in the initial stages amounts to “be more specific.” Accordingly, you will get the most out of this colloquium if you arrive with a clearly defined topic. You have to know the boundaries (e.g., a time frame, a geographic area, a demographic).
