Visual Collegium

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
