I am a re­se­arch asso­ci­ate at the Cluster of Excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung. An Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Hum­boldt Uni­ver­sity Ber­lin. I have an aca­de­mic back­ground in Media Studies and Science and Technology Studies with a fo­cus on me­dia theo­ry, image theo­ry and po­liti­cal theo­ry. My cur­rent re­se­arch in­clu­des pro­jects about aug­men­ted rea­lity, com­pu­ter si­mu­la­tion, so­cial me­dia, re­mote war­fare, lo­ca­tive me­dia and peer-to-peer eco­nomy.

About

Hi, I’m Moritz Queisner and I live and work in Berlin. I’m a re­se­ar­cher with an aca­de­mic back­ground in Media Studies and Science and Technology Studies with a fo­cus on me­dia theo­ry, image theo­ry and po­liti­cal theo­ry. My cur­rent re­se­ar­ch in­clu­des pro­jects about aug­men­ted rea­li­ty, com­pu­ter si­mu­la­ti­on, so­ci­al me­dia, re­mo­te war­fa­re, lo­ca­ti­ve me­dia and peer-to-peer eco­no­my.

If you’re in­te­rested in working with me, plea­se have a look at my port­fo­lio. I am avail­able for con­fe­ren­ces, work­shops or other col­la­bo­ra­ti­ons. Feel free to get in touch, I don’t bite.

Long ver­si­on: Moritz Queisner is a re­se­ar­cher with an aca­de­mic back­ground in Media Studies and Science and Technology Studies with a fo­cus on me­dia theo­ry, image theo­ry and po­liti­cal theo­ry. His re­se­ar­ch co­vers aug­men­ted rea­li­ty, com­pu­ter si­mu­la­ti­on, so­ci­al me­dia, re­mo­te war­fa­re and lo­ca­ti­ve me­dia. His port­fo­lio is avail­able on­line at www.moritzqueisner.de.

Moritz is a re­se­ar­ch asso­ci­ate and PhD can­di­da­te at the Cluster of Excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung. An Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Hum­boldt Uni­ver­sity Ber­lin, whe­re he is part of the re­se­ar­ch team „Image & Action“ (Bild & Handlung). Previously he worked at the Col­legium for the Advanced Study of Pic­tur­e­act and Embod­i­ment and at the Post Media Lab at the Center for Digital Cultures of Leuphana University Lüneburg. He has been mem­ber of the re­se­ar­ch train­ing group Vis­ib­il­ity and Visual Pro­duc­tion: Hybrid Forms of Iconic Know­ledge at the University of Potsdam and the University of ap­p­lied sci­en­ces Potsdam. Moritz also holds an master’s dagree in European Media Stud­ies and a bachelor’s de­gree in Media and Communication Studies.

Moritz is a re­gu­lar spea­ker at con­fe­ren­ces (list with pu­blic talks and lec­tures) and re­gu­la­ry teaches uni­ver­si­ty cour­ses. He is the co-founder of the Drone Research Network, an in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry fo­rum for the ex­ch­an­ge of ide­as and pro­jects re­la­ting to the stu­dy of dro­nes, which was es­ta­blis­hed in 2015. His la­test pu­bli­ca­ti­ons in­clu­de to­pics such as „Mediated Vision in Remote Warfare„, „Image Guidance“ or „Medical Screen Operations“ (full list of pu­bli­ca­ti­ons).

Cluster of Excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung

Since 2013 I work as a re­se­ar­ch as­so­cia­te at the Cluster of Excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung. An Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Hum­boldt Uni­ver­sity Ber­lin. The in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry la­bo­ra­to­ry is a uni­on of so­ci­al, na­tu­ral and tech­no­lo­gi­cal sci­en­ces, me­di­ci­ne and – for the first time in ba­sic re­se­ar­ch – the di­sci­pli­nes of de­si­gn and ar­chi­tec­tu­re as well. In the la­bo­ra­to­ry, more than 25 dif­fe­rent di­sci­pli­nes come to­ge­ther to in­ves­ti­ga­te the fun­da­men­tal Gestaltung pro­ces­ses of the sci­en­ces. My re­se­ar­ch fo­cu­ses on the prac­tical ap­p­li­ca­ti­on of image-guided tech­no­lo­gies. In the pro­ject we will in­ves­ti­ga­te how and in which con­cre­te aes­t­he­tic forms image gui­dan­ce ma­ni­fests its­elf in ap­p­lied vi­sual me­dia; how the­se forms be­co­me images used for gui­dan­ce and ope­ra­ting pro­ce­du­res in spe­ci­fic di­sci­pli­nes; which forms can be sci­en­ti­fi­cal­ly de­scri­bed and epis­te­mo­lo­gi­cal­ly an­cho­red and con­cep­tua­li­zed; and which di­rec­tions are most fe­a­si­ble for ex­plo­ring me­di­cal and tech­ni­cal op­ti­miza­t­i­on.

Post Media Lab

In 2013 I was a a re­se­ar­ch as­so­cia­te at the Post-Media Lab which is si­tua­ted at the Center for Digital Cultures in Lüneburg. The PML is a col­la­bo­ra­ti­on bet­ween Leuphana University and Mute Magazine. The Lab is fo­cu­sed on the po­ten­ti­al for ‚post-media‘ prac­tice, drawing upon Felix Guattari’s con­cept of so­ci­al and me­dial as­sem­bla­ges which un­leash new forms of collec­tive ex­pres­si­on and ex­pe­ri­en­ce. It is cent­red around a sup­por­ted pro­gram­me of vi­sit­ing fel­lows – ar­tists, tech­no­lo­gists, film-makers, theo­rists, post-media ope­ra­tors – and the pro­duc­tion of a se­ries of as­so­cia­ted, in­ter­na­tio­nal pu­blic events and pu­blis­hing pro­jects.

Collegium for the Advanced Study of Picture Act and Embodiment

From 2009–2013 I have been a mem­ber of the Collegium for the Advanced Study of Picture Act and Embodiment at Humboldt University Berlin. The pro­ject ai­med to trans­form the pre­vai­ling mi­me­sis theo­ry of pic­tures, which ar­gues that images are con­cei­ved as li­ken­es­ses, into a Picture Act Theory. Its fo­cus was to con­duct re­se­ar­ch on the spe­ci­fic form of images, their vi­ta­li­ty, and the sub­sti­tu­ti­on of body and image.

Research Training Centre Visibility and Visualization – Hybrid Forms of Pictorial Knowledge

From 2011–2015 I have been a mem­ber of the DFG Research Training Centre „Visibility and Visualisation – Hybrid Forms of Pictorial Knowledge“ at Potsdam University. The pro­gram ex­plo­res forms of vi­sua­li­sa­ti­on in sci­en­ce and art. In col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with Fachhochschule Potsdam and Freie Universität Berlin, the cen­tre in­ves­ti­ga­tes prac­tices of vi­sua­li­sa­ti­on with a view to un­der­stan­ding how know­led­ge and re­flec­tive struc­tures are con­sti­tuted.

European Media Studies

I fi­nis­hed my master’s de­gree of European Media Stud­ies in 2011 with a the­sis about ma­chine vi­si­on. By brin­ging to­ge­ther aes­t­he­tics, theo­ry and cul­tu­ral his­to­ry with tech­ni­cal me­dia skills and me­dia pro­duc­tion, European Media Studies pro­vi­des an in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry ap­proach to enable stu­dents to use and ex­plain me­dia tech­no­lo­gies and to un­der­stand and com­mu­ni­ca­te their so­ci­al, cul­tu­ral and po­liti­cal im­pli­ca­ti­ons. I also hold and a bachelor’s de­gree in Com­m­un­ca­tion Sci­ence and stud­ied Human Secur­ity at Vreije Uni­versiteit Amsterdam.
