Asst. Prof. Andreas Treske gave a talk with Prof. Geert Lovink (Institute of Network Cultures – Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) titled “Online Video: Totality and Power” at The Digital Image – Social Dimensions, Political Perspectives and Economic Constraints Conference.
It is impossible to think of the term “digital image” in isolation. The digital image is fundamentally embedded in the environment of complex technical infrastructures and appears continuously modified as well as contextualized. It is integrated into communication channels generally referred to as “social media”, but whose “social” component is now often called into question. Unmistakable, therefore, is the social and political dimension to be critically addressed in the third symposium of the Priority Program (SPP) “The Digital Image” planned for April 28-30.The Digital Image - Social Dimensions, Political Perspectives and Economic Constraints
