Applications to take part in the workshops:
ICONIC TURN – Bildwissenschaften
Munich, summer semester 2002
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Burda Akademie zum Dritten Jahrtausend and Humanwissenschaftliches Zentrum
der LMU
in cooperation with lothringer13, Ort für aktuelle Kunst und neue Medien

Under the title "Iconic Turn – the new image of the world", in the summer
semester of 2002 a new interdisciplinary series of lectures will be held at
the LMU Munich, which will address the concept of the "Image" or "Picture"
(“Bild”) as a central category in all natural science and cultural studies.
The series will be accompanied by several one-day workshops following up the
individual lectures.

The concept of the "Iconic Turn" refers to the increasingly pictorial nature
of social communication, in which visual media and phenomena have become the
decisive element in exchange, understanding, and perception. "Turn" also
refers to a change in historical studies which is directing their attention
to historical objects and developments, and is bound up with widespread
expectations for an interdisciplinary and cross-media opening up of cultural
studies.

The goal of the workshops
The goal of the workshops is to investigate and to formulate the basic
problems of an interdisciplinary study of images (“Bildwissenschaft”). This
includes the idea of the image in its technical, iconic, and natural science
aspects and the problems it poses in a multimedia and synaesthetic
information society. It also involves the common prehistory of research
carried out on the study of images in various cultural studies and natural
science disciplines, as well as the international comparability of
"Bildwissenschaft" and "Visual Culture Studies" in terms of their respective
tasks and areas of enquiry.

The discussion of the concept of the "Image" across disciplinary boundaries
raises the question of the prospects and tasks that emerge for further
scientific research and the question of what new educational formats it
would make sense to derive from them.

Composition of the workshops
The workshops are made up of a group of about 20 participants from different
disciplines, who will work together throughout the semester. They will in
each case be held the day after the lecture. The speakers, Prof. Dr. Hans
Belting, Prof. Dr. Horst Bredekamp, Sir Norman Foster, Prof. Dr. Peter
Sloterdijk, Prof. Dr. Wolf Singer, and Susan Sontag (invited), and the
moderators of the lectures will be present at the workshops.

Participants should be from a variety of disciplines in the humanities and
the natural sciences. Young scholars (graduates and postgraduates), who may
also be proposed by the heads of their institutes or their professors, are
welcome. People from business will also be brought in (approx. 3). Some 2-3
places will be occupied, on a rotating basis, by relevant specialists.

The workshops will be personally certified by the Rector of the LMU.

Schedule
The workshops are one-day block seminars (in each case on the day following
the relevant lecture): 10.00 (=10.15) to 13.00, 14.00 (=14.15) to 16.00.
They will be held in the premises of the lothringer13, Ort für aktuelle
Kunst und neue Medien
A preparatory meeting will be held in mid-April.
Precise timetables will be given on www.iconic-turn.de.

Applications to participate in the workshops
An important condition for participation is unfailing attendance at the
lectures and workshops (including a preparatory meeting) and a readiness to
be involved in the preparation (e.g., a working paper), holding, and
assessment of a workshop.

Anyone interested in taking part in the workshops should submit their CV,
making clear the main focuses of their studies and research as well as their
interests outside the university. They should also set out on an A4 page why
the theme of Image Studies (Bildwissenschaften) is of interest to them and
their area of research. These documents should be sent by 25 March 2002 to:

Iconic Turn, Burda Akademie zum Dritten Jahrtausend
Rosenkavalierplatz 10,
81925 München
