Summer semester 2019

The Studio Image project for summer semester 2019 examined manifold forms of representation of violence.  Still as well as moving images both reflect and exert violence in connection with their production, dissemination or use. Through the lens of diverse topics the studio investigated how representations of violence can set in motion, subvert and transform social, political and media discourses. Historical and contemporary image strategies, intense theoretical explorations, a film programme and discussions with invited artists and curators supplied inputs as participants developed their own artistic ideas and concepts. In the course of the semester students  realised these in a photographic and/or video-based project and in an artist book. 

The studio was supported by Giulia Cordin (visual communication) and German Duarte Peñaranda (media theory).
