4th Network Meeting (12-14 May 2022)

Media and the Senses

The fourth network meeting is dedicated to the spaces of experience that emerge from the interplay of practices, senses and media (cf. Alper 2018; Hammer 2015; Schillmeier 2010). The interest lies on the aesthetic, artistic and philosophical potentials of dis-/ability in particular, departing from an exploration of blindness in both historic and contemporary practices.
