What is audio thinking and thinking visually

Visual Thinking | Dieter Mersch (ed.)

Thinking means: making judgments, making distinctions - at least according to the common view. Then there seems to be "thinking" - or the expression of thoughts - only in relation to language, writing or text, but not as thinking in the visual, as a form of thinking that is solely in the medium of drawing, the Color that expresses the iconic and shows nothing other than a picture, a framed surface, a series of lines or the density of materials, of figure and ground. The volume brings together essays that provide evidence to the contrary and claim that visual thinking can be divided into modes of showing, of making appearances, of the visual paradox or of the painted contrast, of the opposition of colors and their games, as well as the one Drawing is able to express the comment.

    Ethical and aesthetic dimensions of the performative

    This volume brings together texts in the context of speaking and acting, performativity and mediality, which locate language, voice, face, body and gesture in social realities and aesthetic practice and thematize effects, affects and correlations: the ethical dimensions of the performative unfold in a first Step along the interplay of perceiving, doing and meaning, individual and community. In a further step, aesthetic dimensions of the performative capture artistic processes that pave the way for the aesthetic. The contributions also think through the performativity debate of recent years and offer opportunities for future research fields in the arts and media.

    The Changing Face of Alterity | David J. Gunkel, Ciro Marcondes Filho, Dieter Mersch (eds.) [E-Book PDF]

    The figure of the "other" is fundamental to the concept of communication. Online or offline, communication, which is commonly defined as the act of sending or imparting information to others, is only possible in the face of others. In fact, the reason we communicate is to interact with others — to talk to another, to share our thoughts and insights with them, or to respond to their needs and requests. No matter how it is structured or conceptualized, communication is involved with addressing the other and dealing with the ontological, epistemological, and ethical questions of otherness or alterity. But who or what can be other? Who or what can be the subject of communication? Is the other always and only another human? Or can the other in these communicative interactions be otherwise? This book is about others (and other kinds of others). It concerns the current position and status of the other in the face of technological innovations that can, in one way or another distort, mask, or even deface the other. Ten innovative essays, written by an international team of experts, individually and in collaboration with each other, seek to diagnose the current situation with otherness, devise innovative solutions to the questions of alterity, and provide insight for students, teachers and researchers trying to make sense of the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century.
