This certified program offers a compact theoretical and practical introduction to the wide spectrum of image related knowledge in art history as much as in popular culture and contemporary methodology – spanning icons over the panorama to telematic installations.

The course combines the study of original art works – from the medieval illumination to film and the current digital image world – with the most important image theories of art history, natural sciences and communication studies.
