The Department of Art and Cultural Studies (IKK) of the University of Copenhagen provides an important framework for international research and high education within the areas of Art History and Visual Culture, Theatre Studies, Dance Studies, Modern Culture, Literature and Musicology.
In 2013 and 2014, the Department of Art and Cultural Studies organizes a lecture series 'Bildwissenschaft & Visual Culture' as a starting point of the newly established Strategic Partnership in Arts and Culture between the Goethe-Institut Dänemark and the Department for Art and Cultural Studies (IKK).
The lecture series has been opened by Oliver Grau´s lecture “Strengthen the Humanities. MediaArtHistories, Image Science & the Archive 2.0” on 12.04.2013. (See more on the lecture series in the H-ARTHIST&H-NET archive: http://www.h-net.org/announce/show.cgi?ID=202236)
On October 4th, Prof. Dr. Emeritus Norbert Schneider, Karlsruhe will hold the lecture entitled “W. J. T. Mitchell and the Iconic Turn”.
Venue: University Copenhagen, The Department of Art and Cultural Studies (IKK) / HUM Campus, Kopenhagen: Auditorium 23.0.50, Friday, 15-17.00
In his lecture, Norbert Schneider deals with the positions placed behind the high-profiled proclamations of the Pictorial Turn and the Iconic Turn. In particular, it is about the reconstruction of the back story of the ‘Visual Science’-related arguments by W.J.T. Mitchell und Gottfried Boehm. The radically immanentistic position of the latter will be discussed in comparison with the thoroughly politically dimensioned position of the former and its influence by the Cultural Materialism.
