Our Questions, Assumptions and Methods


What do we think about ‘us’ and the ‘other’? How do we understand the ways of cultural interactions? What are our ideas about past, present and future?


Cultural memory is shaped by the ways of perceiving and imagining and vice versa it shapes them.


The project ‘Exploring Visual Cultures

  • takes a closer look at visual objects (architecture, logos, art-works, photos, and fashion, for example) asking simple questions: What do they mean? How are they influenced? How do they influence?
  • looks for answers in transnational dialogues between (art) educators, (art) historians, (cultural) anthropologists, artists.
  • shares its results with the world-wide community of researchers and educators through conferences, publications, and this website.
