CORE 003 SC - Between the Image and the Word
The relation between writing, painting, photography, cinema, comics, and electronic media might at first be viewed as a familiar combination of visual and verbal art as an interplay of affinities. However, it also generates numerous theoretical speculations with far-reaching implications for the conceptualization of art, literature and electronic media and its relation to the histories of the present. The potentially frictional relations between the visual image and the written text are especially pertinent for a discussion of the cultural productions in Europe and the Americas during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The course will also examine the critique that new forms of media generate particularly when it comes to the growing popularity of the image.
