SELFIES by Wolfgang Ullrich
Book presentation

Tuesday, 26 March 2019, 7 pm in the Sudhaus, free admission (in German)

Elke Buhr (editor-in-chief of the magazine Monopol) will engage in a discussion with Annekathrin Kohout and Wolfgang Ullrich, the editors of the book series. 
Moderator: René Aguigah (Deutschlandfunk Kultur)

Technological change has given images a tremendous amount of significance. The fact that they are easier than ever to produce and spread not only leads to the much-cited “flood of images”, but also lends images additional functions. For the first time, people can communicate with images as naturally as with spoken or written language. The “iconic turn” proclaimed years ago has become reality.

The series DIGITALE BILDKULTUREN published by Wagenbach discusses the most important new forms and uses of images and places them in their cultural-historical context
