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:
- a) lectures by filmologists and philosophers, art historians and artists,
- b) translation and publication of significant texts and monographs in the field of visual culture,
- 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
