See this Sound – Sound-Image Relations in Art, Media and Perception

The project SEE THIS SOUND explores the past and present of the link between image and sound in art, media and perception. The starting point is the fact that our world of experience today is marked by an omnipresence of audiovisual products and structures, in which the cultural production of image and sound is closely intertwined artistically, and in terms of media technology and market strategy. SEE THIS SOUND reacts to this by presenting and discussing different realizations of contemporary art and art studies. The current fields of reference range here from pop culture to the theory of perception and media technology.

The goal of the international symposium is an interdisciplinary exchange among the theoretical and aesthetic thematic fields of the project. At the intersection of different academic disciplines the conference touches, among others, on art and music studies, media and art theory, media archeology, and the history of media technology. Artistic presentations are integrated in the course of the conference to stimulate the dialogue between art and science.
