“In praise of indirectness”
Keynote 20.11.2016, 18:00, in German
Immediacy, authenticity, direct experiences. Currently, unmediated experience is generally celebrated, not least in many fields where immersion plays a part – whether in the realm of art or beyond it. In her lecture, Doris Kolesch reminds us that the experience of immediacy is an effect based on indirectness, that is to say, on creative strategies, deployment of media, cultural techniques and procedures of intermediation in general.
