Research Colloquium

Film, Media Art, and Popular Culture

The Lab "Film, Media Art, and Popular Culture" is concerned with visual and audio-visual media, their aesthetics and history as well as with their transformation in the context of digitalisation and globalisation. A particular research focus lies on the specific forms and dispositives of film, media art and popular culture, their production, distribution, broadcasting, exhibition, mediation and appropriation together with their preservation and collection in archives. Thereby not only media production and media artworks are anaylized, but also their aesthetic experience through collective and individual use plus the discourses and cultural interactions that accompany them.

The international research colloquium is part of the research lab Centre of Media, Communication and Information Research (ZeMKI).
