Audiovisual media are essential to our society. Platforms, interfaces and networked media infrastructures have become ubiquitous and affect all aspects of private and public life. Digital media have radically reconfigured how we create, exhibit, view and interact with film, television, art, and cultural objects. At the same time, they also represent and contribute to global environmental crises.
This master’s programme equips students with the tools to critically analyse the complex technological and aesthetic relationships between media, art, and the environment. It addresses these themes through three central pillars: materialities of media, (cross-)media spaces, and time, sensing and aesthetics.
In this specialisation, you will explore historical, theoretical and analytical perspectives on these phenomena while also examining exhibition and archival practices.
Comparative Arts and Media Studies is one of the tracks of the master's programme in Arts & Culture. Find more information about the other tracks here.
