The Chair // Visual Encounters with Power

Online workshop

As Mirzoeff put it (2005: 6), “Western culture has consistently privileged the spoken word as the highest form of intellectual practice and seen visual representations as second-rate illustrations of ideas.” Mitchell has coined “pictorial turn” (1994: 11) in today’s culture the shift from a text-centric to a multi-medial, mainly visual approach to the world. Visual studies are gaining space in social sciences, if not on the highways, at least on the sidewalks of research and teaching practice.
