Abstract

The project aims at analyzing the ways in which images (painting, contemporary art, photography, film) through their rhetoric, anticipate our modes of looking and interpretation. Rather than asking what we want from the overwhelming number of images surrounding us, this project starts from the question of what images demand from us, following WJT Mitchell in this regard. Going beyond the evident propagandistic use of "demanding" images in advertisements, this project s goal is to expand current visual theory by exploring ways in which images or art works offer us new theoretical insights. Seminars to be held at regular intervals focus on a visual analysis of particular images, as well as classical and recent theoretical texts on visual analysis.
