As an alternative to the text-based presentations at the DGV-conference the AG Media and AG Visual Anthropology in cooperation with the Research Area Visual and Media Anthropology of the Freie Universität Berlin will organize an exhibition that provides an opportunity to present research-based creative or artistic ethnographic works.Taking up the general topic of the conference we are looking for projects that deploy the experimential and sensory potentials of media-based research to explore the affective dynamics of images, sounds and objects with regard to notions of belonging. A special focus is on the question of how new media technologies, especially digital media, are used in creating and breaking forms of collectivity.The exhibition will be open for audio-visual, experimental or artistic formats that explore and represent anthropological knowledge such as documentary and fiction films, animations, video or photo essays, websites and web-based projects, field recordings and soundscapes, drawings and paintings, comics, sculptures and objects, installations or performances. The major selection criterion will be the intention to explore methodological and epistemological potentials of non-textual approaches expressed in the project. An accompanying panel of the AG Media will provide the opportunity to present a paper that reflects on the research.
