Lernziele / Kompetenzen
  • To explore how the media influence representations of "realities and truths"
  • to find ways through the excess of digitalised and digital images
  • to reflect on critical documentary, especially in artistic practice
  • To be able to identify and modify our own artistic documentary strategies
InhalteWith the advent of smartphones and social media, photographs and videos are omnipresent. The dominance of visual aesthetics in our social environment is changing our understanding of representations of the real. What is virtual, what is staged, what is factual? What can be proven? Can we still believe the digital and digitised images or what secrets lie in the overflow of images? Can we, and perhaps especially in art, generate critical narratives with our individual image and archiving strategies that offer us socio-aesthetic options in transcultural, post-colonial and cross-feminist contexts?

We will discuss and share our own artistic work and positions and take a closer look at projects such as those by Karrabing Collective, Hito Steyerl, Studio Camp, Forensic Architecture and Cao Fei.

About the lecturer:

Yvonne Wilhelm is an artist (part of the artist duo knowbotiq) and professor, teaching at the ZHdK MFA, who has been experimenting with forms and medialities of social imaginaries, visual regimes, and epistemic disobedience, with a certain focus on queer-feminist and post-/decolonial aspects. Her practical focus is on post-digital time-based formats, installative-performative settings, and research-led art.
