Symposium "Visual Cultures"

From the 19th to the 20th of October 2012, the interdisciplinary symposium ‘Visual Cultures? Perspectives of the Vienna Visual Studies” took place at the University of Vienna. Academics of four different faculties presented their approaches to visual cultures with a focus on circuits of visual cultures, their continuities and discontinuities, the relation between the visual, language and knowledge as well as visual representation processes. 

Here is the programme and photo documentation of the event by Luiza Puiu. 

We thank the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Faculty of Historical and Cultural Studies, and the Department of Political Sciences for their generous support of the event!
