Kategorie: #Aesthetics&CulturalPractice

#Aesthetics&CulturalPractice is a thread of the #MECAM series that seeks to consider the profound influence that societal changes have exerted on aesthetics and cultural practices (and vice-versa).

The essays are the result of the collaborative work of the Interdisciplinary Fellow Group “Aesthetics & Cultural Practice”.

Comics as Witness and Testimony: An Interview with Jennifer Howell

I’ll start by stating that not all comics at the core of my scholarship were created in the digital age. Yet, artists working today are very active in the blogosphere.
