InhalteGlobal Icons have local meanings: What do they say about our identities, society and culture? What makes an icon? How can we deconstruct, remix and hack it?
In this three-week summer school, a global pop icon will serve as the common starting point for cultural analysis and for the
transdisciplinary production of new artistic and journalistic works seeking to deconstruct, remix and expand the influence of the chosen icon. Participants from Europe and Asia will collaborate through using various methods of research (ethnographic field research, pop culture theory, reception theory, discourse analysis) and through co-creation in various
formats.

This practice-based summer school will offer students a unique opportunity toexperience new creative fields in transcultural collaborations and to learn about cultural concepts inglobal contexts situated between high and low culture, global mainstream and transcultural adaptation. Focusing on a chosen icon (e.g. Michael Jackson, Maria Magdalena, Dragon Ball/Journey to the West, Emoji, Kanye West, Frida Kahlo), the different projects will interconnect and influence each other. Collaboration will result in a final presentation in multiple formats (e.g. fiction and documentary film, interactive media, performances, creative nonfiction, short stories, comics, podcasts, discourse analysis, spatial installations, art in public space, songs, music videos, etc.).
