Images have an enormous influence on our thinking, feeling and acting. They change the way we look at the world and convey political messages.
How images influence our perception is the subject of research in numerous disciplines. Scientists beyond art history also deal with images because they have recognised their potential to have an effect in social contexts. Particularly in the age of the mass media, our society was and still is exposed to a flood of images, whose effects need to be researched and discussed. What political functionalization can images have? And how can one resist the power of images?
These and further questions will be discussed on the podium by the art historian Nausikaä El-Mecky and the following persons: - Prof. Dr. Andreas Beyer (Speaker of the Research Network "Image Vehicles", University of Basel) - Prof. Dr. Charlotte Klonk (Humboldt University Berlin) - PD Dr. Karin Liebhart (University of Vienna)
The Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and Geisteswissenschaumanities in Dialogue will be hosting this panel discussion.
