Visual Course

The Visual Course was launched in 2004 with the intention of promoting new and different approaches to (moving) image thinking. Our research into what the image is today – how it is created and how it circulates – is based on the concept and practice of “extended film”.

The course program consists of:

  1. a) lectures by filmologists and philosophers, art historians and artists,
  2. b) translation and publication of significant texts and monographs in the field of visual culture,
  3. c) occasional screenings and exhibitions.

So far we have published: Proceedings of the Visual College, a monograph by Alexander Garcia-Düttmann on Visconti, and books by Jacques Rancier, Georges Didi-Huberman and Tom Keenan & Eyal Weizman, as well as occasional newspaper topics.

Lectures were given and / or participated in the program: 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, Lillevan Pobjoy, Sandra Sterle, Dan Oki, Stojan Pelko, Gertrud Koch & Hauke ​​Brunkhorst, Pavle Levi, Go Hirasawa, Jonathan Beller, Peter Szendy, Mladen Dolar, Ksenija Stevanovic & Nenad Romic, Ana Peraica, Lech Kow Zoe Crosher, Nathan Brown, Thomas Köner, Slobodan Šijan, Bruce McClure
