Mål og innhald

Why do images exist? Why do we make them or use them? Are there too many? Too few? Can we imagine a world

without them, as William Bornefeld once did? Or a world filled with images only and deprived of text, as Vilém Fusser

ventured to think?

This course will study the production of images, their existence and distinct organizational and/or value systems; its

aim is to learn to read and speak of images. We will undertake historical and contemporary issues by addressing

concepts such as surface, reflection, display, material, readability, representation, illusion, appearance, manipulation,

context, frame, technology, disappearance, abstraction, over-exposure, resistance, copyright, ideology, remembrance,

obsolescence, decoding, encoding, censorship, subordination, witness, slippage.

We will commit ourselves to group discussions and will dissect artists¿ works, analyze key texts, engage with guest speakers, and visit specific exhibitions, sites, and archives.
