The Construction of Images, Eikones Summer School

The Construction of Images, Eikones Summer School

August 26th – 31st, 2012

This year’s Eikones Summer School of the NCCR Iconic Criticism will dedicate three transdisciplinary courses to the construction of images. Images are not only generated and constructed in many different ways but, in turn, contribute towards a construction of fields of activity and scopes of knowledge. All three courses will deal with a complex field of iconic criticism, in which contexts of production, reception, and work aesthetics are closely interwoven.

“Image Production in the Arts and the Sciences” will study what role the fact that images are made can have on their definition from the point of view of art history, philosophy, and the history of science.

“A Somewhat Different Measure” proposes to approach the image from the theory of proportions and, thus, re-define it from the point of art history and theory.

“Shaping Knowledge” finally seeks to define the epistemic and aesthetic potentials of graphical forms of notation in the construction and consolidation of disciplinary schools of thought and modes of action.
