"Intermediary Images"

Images play a vital role in mediating knowledge – in research and teaching, in public talks and academic lectures, in art, journalism, and culture as daily routine. We aim to investigate the intermediary role of images from the fields of Art and Literature, Psychology, Sound and Performance, Archives and Activism. In many research fields it is common to use images as a representation for different purpose. The images can illustrate the actual subject under consideration, it can capture a state in time or stand for a situation or an object. It can be used for explanation or represent the data set.

In this conference, we would like to outline different approaches, which all have in common that the image is taken as an abstract for an underlying subject or concept. The image itself can be created as a 2D visual, but also more abstract in text or presented as film. With this symposium, we want to create a platform for exchange on the main topic „Intermediary Images“. The focus is set on the use of images/imaginary images in arts, media, politics, literature, and psychology. The aim is to use the main topic as starting point for an interdisciplinary exchange on how we use images and visualizations within our research fields. // Photo: Brannon Naito on Unsplash

Projekt „Tracking the Traffic“

The Project „Tracking the Traffic: Bertha Pappenheim App“ is a project at the interface of science, art and society.

It is realized in cooperation with the artist Elianna Renner, and it is a part of her main project "Tracking the Traffic", which deals with the trafficking of Jewish women as an aspect of the 19th and 20th century global migration history.

You can see a movie about Bertha Pappenheim, the project and the Bertha Pappenheim App here.
