Icons and media celebrities, advertising and news images, and a myriad of visual messages that we encounter in our daily life all try to shape the way we think, feel, and respond to the reality around us. They are designed to influence our beliefs and values, our sense of identity, our consumer preferences, as well as our social commitments and affiliations. In our intellectual journey we will learn to critically understand such artifacts of visual culture; visual literacy is the aim of this colloquium. We will consider approaches to visual expression and focus on the web presence of art, performative events, and architecture in Berlin, Vienna, and Shanghai as well as the representation of these metropoles in film, literature, and music. The colloquium will include a viewing of works at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.
