DescriptionECREA Visual Cultures aims to foster shared interests in visual cultures.Today the scientific world at large is witnessing to an increased interest in the visual field (the boost of university programmes in visual cultures and studies are an evident sign of this). Thanks in particular to the merging of the visual with the digital images are today truly ubiquitous. A kind of ‘visual hypertrophy’ permeates the everyday life of a lot of us today. Yet, we should not take the meaning, nor the geopolitics of this hypertrophy for granted.
While acknowledging that the visual is much more than a form of ‘thin description’, (as Hastrup provocatively suggested in 1992) we need today to rethink the grounds on which we address visual cultures.
ECREA Visual Cultures is s space for collecting such reflections and for addressing questions of theory as well as of practice and methodology in the terrain of contemporary visual cultures.
