Visual Collegium was launched in 2004 with the aim of promoting new and different approaches to reflection on the (moving) image. Our research on the meaning of image today – how it is created and circulated – is based on the concept and practice of “extended cinema.”
Collegium’s programme consists of:
a) lectures by cinema theoreticians and philosophers, art historians and artists;
b) translation and publications of important articles and monographs from the field of visual culture;
c) occasional screenings and exhibitions.
So far, we have published the Reader of the Visual Collegium, Alexander Garcia-Düttmann’s monograph on Visconti, books by Jacques Rancière, Georges Didi-Huberman, and Tom Keenan & Eyal Weizman, as well as various newspaper specials.
Lecturers and/or participants in the programme: Cesare Casarino, Tomislav Medak, Stephen Zepke, Aleksandar Battista Ilić, Jelena Krivokapić, Stathis Gourgouris, Ruth Noack, Marie-Luise Angerer, Saša Vojković, Marko Stamenković, Alexander Garcia-Düttmann, Alexander Horwath, Akira Mizuta Lippit, Lillevän Pobjoy, Sandra Sterle, Dan Oki, Stojan Pelko, Gertrud Koch & Hauke Brunkhorst, Pavle Levi, Go Hirasawa, Jonathan Beller, Peter Szendy, Mladen Dolar, Ksenija Stevanović & Nenad Romić, Ana Peraica, Lech Kowalski, Zoe Crosher, Nathan Brown, Thomas Köner, Slobodan Šijan, Bruce McClure
