Film and Contemporary Audiovisual Media
This theme group concentrates on the production, aesthetics, reception and impact of film and other contemporary audiovisual screen media. There is a focus on the philosophical, cognitive and phenomenological relation between audiovisual art and its audience, the social, technological and artistic developments in the field, historiographical, epistemological, and ontological questions regarding media objects and practices, and the materiality and medium-specificity of artworks.
The theme group 'Film and Contemporary Audiovisual Media' (formerly Arts, Medium and Moving Images) hosts a research colloquium, introducing well-known scholars from Film and Media Studies to the academic community in Groningen.
