a visual cultural study of globalised youth, art and education
Abstract: ‘How do we inhabit the world in a globalised, virtual reality?' In this paper, I discuss how visual culture emerges from various contexts across traditional distinctions between art and media and between physical and virtual spaces. Furthermore, I discuss the methodological implications of using visual cultural strategically. The empirical outset is a visual ethnographic study conducted in relation to the Dokumenta 12, in Kassel. The presentation will examine three events: A national Manga festival which took place next to my hotel in Kassel The attributes of the art work: A fairy tale (by the Chinese artist Ai WeWe) A conducted art tour prepared and organized by two high school students. Firstly, I discuss the three event's potentials for learning Secondly, I discuss the three event's contribution to the discussions of visual culture Thirdly, I discuss the potentials of the methodology.
