Contrapuntal Media


Thursday 18.05. | 15:00 – 18:00 | Senatsraum 303 (3rd Floor)

Dangerous political signals are translating into a perverse, but unique challenge for the arts

In past eras of technological shock, two media – or more – have often shared the same stage within a time-based narrative. These anomalies force new grammars to come into place. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, examples of “countrapuntal media” can be found in dramatic theater, music, architecture, and early cinema. Clearly we are once again living in an era of technological shock. Once again, contrapuntal media speaks to political, aesthetic, economic unrest.
