the spatial life of images

How are social spaces transformed and shaped by visual media? And how can we analyse the social lifes of images – especially in their spatial extension?  In order to answer these questions the project refers to sociological and philosophical theories that depict space as always already filled with emotions and various projects and projections and claimed by various social agents and to an understanding of visual culture as evidence, as a trigger of desire and hate and as an impetus to action. The project combines insights from sociology, philosophies of social space, visual culture studies and film studies.
