Beschreibung

One aim of the Art & Science master program is to introduce students to current visualization techniques that produce (scientific) images. The seminar will contextualize those practices and will discuss (among others) the following questions and issues: What are the relations between modern and historical production techniques? How does (and did) the cartographic representation of realities produce different worlds? Did the introduction of (computerbased) simulations and representation techniques change our imaginations of "objectivity" and "subjectivity"? And finally, what role do those images play in various transfer media, in scientific publications and journals, in the press and grant applications, in public and private science communication activities. This "iconophilia" that accepts images as important tools for scientific reasoning contrasts to a traditional "iconophobia" that critiques the deceptive role of images. A conflict that, of course, is not limited merely to the scientific world.
