Course Description: This course investigates the relationship between screen technologies and culturally-embedded screen practices, specifically in public and urban contexts. Screen phenomena beside the classical cinematic screen that are discussed and analyzed include: urban screens, mobile screens, VR and AR, video mapping and outdoor projections, interactive screen-based installations, and media architecture. The focus is on change and innovation, as well as a comparison of different and/or converging media forms. The perspective that is developed in this course is a historically-informed comparative analysis with an emphasis on moments when new spaces are created by new screens and screen-based constellations and their spatial design. For this, the reflection is on theories about the specificity of the cinematic and post-cinematic screen and on spatial, material, and performative aspects of screen spectatorship. Starting points for inquiries are offered by current debates about digitization and techno-cultural change, questions about medium specificity, hybridity, and convergence, and about new (and interactive) forms of spectatorship.
