Visual Culture

Recent publications by Visual Culture faculty members


In 2001 the Institute of Art and Design at the Vienna University of Technology has initiated a study and research programme in Visual Culture. The Visual Culture Unit aims to critically engage with a multitude of forms and practices of cultural production, negotiation and appropriation alongside their historical, political, social and economic trajectories. Examining the various materialisations of these processes, the scope of our work ranges from interrogating the visual as a situated mode of contemporary cultural production to experimenting with innovative theoretical frameworks and design approaches.

2018/19 Winterterm's Topic: Building Capital V

The 2018/19 course programme focuses on 'Building Capital' as part of a global development, in which decision-making about societal cohesion, about building developments and infrastructural projects has become the preserve of financial institutions and consultancies. What are the cultural references, technologies and speculations through which architectue is enrolled in this development? And which kind of culture is emerging in the transformation of the built environment from a container for the production of commodities to a capitalist commodity in itself?

 

Course subjects range from the development of new postcapitalist spheres of accumulation in architecture to the generation of financial, social and affective capital in urban projects, and from the philosophical dimension of pursuing gains to the question of capital impact in art and media culture.
