liebe Freundinnen und Freunde des Medientheaters,

zum Semesterabschluss darf ich Sie und euch herzlich zu dem englischsprachigen Workshop „Scenes of Media Theater“ vom 10. bis 13. Juli im Medientheater einladen, der im Rahmen der Profilpartnerschaft zwischen der Humboldt-Universität und der Universidade de São Paulo ausgerichtet wird.

U.a. wird dabei die neue Website des Medientheaters vorgestellt. Neben Präsentationen von Theoretiker_innen und Künstler_innen, die mit dem Medientheater assoziiert sind, gibt es darüber hinaus auch die Gelegenheit, studentische Medientheater-Arbeiten aus den zurückliegenden Semestern zu sehen.

Besonders hinweisen möchte ich auch auf den Vortrag von Patricia Moran von der Universidade de São Paulo, die am Dienstag, 10.07., um 18h über die Mediendramaturgie des Fußballs sprechen wird. Dazu passend wird es im Anschluss im Medientheater die Möglichkeit geben, das erste Halbfinale der laufenden Fußball-WM zu schauen.

Scenes of Media Theater

International Workshop

10-13 July 2018
Medientheater at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Georgenstr. 47, Raum 0.01

Throughout the last five semesters, the works developed and presented in the Medientheater at Humboldt-Universität (HU) have taken a radically open perspective. Rather than being based on a predefined notion of „media theater“ they have repeatedly raised a question: What could „media theater“ be(come)? This question is now being addressed in the ongoing collaboration of the Medientheater and the Cinema and Arts Spaces at Universidade de São Paulo (USP). The project started in March 2018 with workshops in Porto Alegre and São Paulo, and continues this July with a workshop in Berlin. Within our joint research we are examining the variety of insights that remain inaccessible to purely theoretical forms of research, but can be gained from an artistic involvement with the culture and technology of historical and contemporary media. The notion of the scene that is central to this approach: whereas scholarly knowledge emerges from a discourse of propositions, the a priori of aesthetic knowledge can be defined as the scene— broadly understood as a temporal and spatial configuration that can be apprehended instantly by human perception and onto which the effects of dispersed hybrid actor-networks that coordinate social interactions and subjective experiences are projected. Against this background, the upcoming workshop at the Medientheater will not only provide the opportunity to discuss the topic of aesthetic knowledge, but also to recall various Scenes of Media Theater and reflect on the work accomplished in the Medientheater during the last two and a half years.

Organization: Florian Leitner
