Workshop: Screen Operations

Together with my colleague Kathrin Friedrich I will be hosting a workshop on:
Screen Operations. Conditions of Screen-based Interaction
Workshop, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Interdisciplinary Laboratory Image Knowledge Gestaltung

Wednesday, July 13 & Thursday, July 14, 2016
Venue: Sophienstrasse 22a, 10178 Berlin
Central Laboratory (2nd courtyard, 2nd  floor)
Open to the public
Screen-based technologies increasingly merge the levels of action and perception. With image production and transmission being possible in real time, screens are no longer spatially fixed and temporally subordinated devices that display static images, but are increasingly integrated into visual practices. The correlation of screen and operation in graphical user interfaces, touchscreens or augmented reality applications, turns the viewer first and foremost into a user. The workshop investigates the relationship of screen and operation in visual culture, interaction and architectural design, computer history, medicine and warfare. We will discuss the aesthetic, epistemic and operational modalities of screen operations in order to trace their political, technological and historical implications.
