Auf die vielerorts im Kontext der Neuen Bewegtbilder in Kino/TV/Netz/Kunst ausgerufene »Expansion der Sinne« reagiert der bilinguale Band mit einer umsichtigen Doppelbewegung. Zunächst gilt es, in einem genauen Befragen der für das Kino konstitutiven, »kinästhetischen« Erfahrung in der Filmwahrnehmung (Vivian Sobchack) ein in die Medien stets schon eingeschriebenes Angebot zur sinnlichen (Selbst-)Entgrenzung und Überschreitung anzuerkennen. In der Folge wird im Wechselspiel konkreter Bewegtbilder aus den Produktionsstätten der Neuen Medien mit philosophischen, gesellschaftstheoretischen und neurobiologisch motivierten Theorien und Modellen der Wandel unserer sinnlichen und mentalen Vermögen durch Techniken der Modulation, der Simulation, der Prothetik, der Vernetzung und der digitalen Kartographie nachgezeichnet.

Migration wurde in Deutschland bis vor kurzem als voraussetzungslos verhandelt. Nanna Heidenreich setzt dem die geschichtsbildende Kraft und die Welthaltigkeit von Film entgegen. Sie zeigt: Die juristische Kategorie des »Ausländers« wird zwar hartnäckig als soziale missverstanden, aber das Kino inszeniert nicht einfach die V/Erkennungsdienste des deutschen Ausländerdiskurses. Es zeigt andere Verhandlungen von Geschichte und Geschichten, Genealogien und Geschlecht, Bilderstreiten, Transparenz und Schleier, Säkularisierung, Blut, Sex und Haut - und die stete Neuformatierung durch die Perspektive der Migration.

Der Band bietet einen inter- und transdisziplinären Blick auf den Begriff der Wende / des turns. In den einzelnen Teilen werden einerseits spezifische Fachdiskurse (z.B. erziehungswissenschaftliche, philosophische, künstlerische), andererseits übergreifende Thematiken (z.B. der documentary turn in der zeitgenössischen Kunst) bearbeitet. Eine wissenschaftstheoretische Fundierung sowie konkrete Überlegungen zu Wenden als interdisziplinärem Phänomen rahmen den Band.

Die Strategie der kritischen Unterwanderung vorgefasster Kategorien ist eine wirkmächtige subversive künstlerische Praktik, der innerhalb des postkolonialen Kunstdiskurses eine besonders wichtige Bedeutung zukommt. Wie Judith Bihr anhand zeitgenössischer Kunst aus Ägypten darlegt, begegnen viele Künstler_innen der Problematik der eigenen Verortung, indem sie stereotype Vorstellungen scheinbar bedienen, um diese zugleich künstlerisch zu unterminieren. Am Beispiel der Verwendung ornamentaler Strukturen wird gezeigt, wie sich die Arbeiten einer eindeutigen Zuschreibung entziehen und so gerade ihre eigene Ambivalenz zum Thema machen. Damit liefern sie zugleich einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Debatte um eine global formulierte Kunstgeschichte.**

In der digitalen Welt kommt den öffentlichen und privaten Archiven eine entscheidende Rolle für das Sammeln, Bewahren und Erforschen analoger und digitaler visueller Quellen zu. Konservatorische und quellenkritische Probleme stellen private wie öffentliche Institutionen vor enorme Herausforderungen. So sind nach wie vor technische und konservatorische Probleme nicht befriedigend geklärt. Entscheidende Fragen zum wissenschaftlich-methodischen Umgang stellen sich: Wie soll man mit visuellem Material verfahren, zu dem wenig oder gar keine Informationen vorhanden sind? Welche Fotografien und Filme sind überhaupt sammelnswert und lassen sich verbindliche Kriterien dafür festschreiben? Wie lassen sich visuelle Quellen erschließen? Die fundierte Fotografieforschung etablierte sich in der europäischen Landschaft der Wissenschaften erst seit dem letzten Drittel des 20. Jahrhunderts. Ein vorrangiges archivtechnisches Ziel sollte darin liegen, Möglichkeiten für jene zu gewährleisten, die sich wissenschaftlich mit den Beständen beschäftigen wollen. Archive stehen hierzu in der Pflicht, das visuelle patrimoniale Erbe regional wie national zu verwalten und für spätere Generationen zugänglich zu halten.

Media divide and connect simultaneously: they act as intermediaries between otherwise disconnected entities, and as a 'middle' that mediates, but also shields different entities from each other. This ambiguity gives rise to conflicting interpretations, and it evokes all those figures that give a first clue about this janus-faced relationship of 'connect and divide': gate-keeper, parasite, amongst others. If we give accounts of media before and after their mediated action, we refer to persons and organizations, automatisms and artifacts, signals and inscriptions, and we seem to find it easy to refer to their distinct potentials and dis/abilities. But within the interaction? the 'middle' of media itself seems to be distributed right across the mix of material, semiotic and personal entities involved, and the location of agency is hard to pin down. In case of breakdown we have to disentangle the mix; in case of smooth operations action becomes all the more distributed and potentially untraceable? which makes its attribution a matter of the simultaneously occuring distribution of (official and unofficial) knowledge, labour and power. The empirical and historical investigation of this two-faced relationship of 'connect and divide' has thus resulted in a veritable 'practice turn in media studies'.0 0The publication studies four aspects of the practice turn in media studies: Media history from a praxeological perspective, the practice turn in religion and media studies, the connecting and dividing lines of media theories concerning gender and post_colonial agencies, and a historical and theoretical examination of the current relationship of media theory and practice theory.
Neoliberalism and Global Cinema

Neoliberalism and Global Cinema

In cinema studies today, rarely do we find a direct investigation into the culture of capitalism and how it has been refracted and fabricated in global cinema production under neoliberalism. However, the current economic crisis and the subsequent Wall Street bailout in 2008 have brought about a worldwide skepticism regarding the last four decades of economic restructuring and the culture that has accompanied it. In this edited volume, an international ensemble of scholars looks at neoliberalism, both as culture and political economy, in the various cinemas of the world. In essays encompassing the cinemas of Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the United States the authors outline how the culture and subjectivities engendered by neoliberalism have been variously performed, contested, and reinforced in these cinemas. The premise of this book is that the cultural and economic logic of neoliberalism, i.e., the radical financialization and market-driven calculations, of all facets of society are symptoms best understood by Marxist theory and its analysis of the central antagonisms and contradictions of capital. Taking a variety of approaches, ranging from political economy, ideological critique, the intersection of aesthetics and politics, social history and critical-cultural theory, this volume offers a fresh, broad-based Marxist analysis of contemporary film/media. Topics include: the global albeit antagonistic nature of neoliberal culture; the search for a new aesthetic and documentary language; the contestation between labor and capital in cultural producion; the political economy of hollywood, and questions of gender, sexuality, and the nation state in relation to neoliberalism.

The Arab Spring began and ended with Tunisia. In a region beset by brutal repression, humanitarian disasters, and civil war, Tunisia's Jasmine Revolution alone gave way to a peaceful transition to a functioning democracy. Within four short years, Tunisians passed a progressive constitution, held fair parliamentary elections, and ushered in the country's first-ever democratically elected president. But did Tunisia simply avoid the misfortunes that befell its neighbors, or were there particular features that set the country apart and made it a special case? In Tunisia: An Arab Anomaly, Safwan M. Masri explores the factors that have shaped the country's exceptional experience. He traces Tunisia's history of reform in the realms of education, religion, and women's rights, arguing that the seeds for today's relatively liberal and democratic society were planted as far back as the middle of the nineteenth century. Masri argues that Tunisia stands out not as a model that can be replicated in other Arab countries, but rather as an anomaly, as its history of reformism set it on a separate trajectory from the rest of the region. The narrative explores notions of identity, the relationship between Islam and society, and the hegemonic role of religion in shaping educational, social, and political agendas across the Arab region. Based on interviews with dozens of experts, leaders, activists, and ordinary citizens, and a synthesis of a rich body of knowledge, Masri provides a sensitive, often personal, account that is critical for understanding not only Tunisia but also the broader Arab world.

The morning after the brutal terrorist attacks on November 13, 2015, Paris awoke to heavy gray skies, streets deadly silent and the country under a state of emergency. This unnerving moment compelled German photography artist and theorist Bettina Lockemann to pick up her camera and head out to roam across Paris. Using black-and-white film Lockemann photographed vacant streets, empty cafes and memorials filled with mourners, each image capturing the oppressive atmosphere in the streets and squares and allowing her to process the horrors from the night before. The events documented in Lockemanns drive culminate in this intimate pocket-sized book in which 124 full-bleed raw black-and-white images relentlessly flow across 128 pages with no essay breaks or artist statement to validate the images, just the visual details and newspaper headlines printed as if a ghostly

Roselyne Titaud observes the lives of others through their interiors, their knickknacks, and the particular atmosphere of their daily private setting. Their knickknacks, their accumulated objects, alive with personality, memory, and curiosity, function as containers of time - to stop it, or injured it on its race. Because Titaud always works with natural light, there is something that is always guaranteed by this light. The photographer, no trickster herself, captures the tricks that light plays as it finds forgotten and overlooked interior spaces. What it illuminates is not simply the physical, the spatial. With every visit she does, Titaud gives a respectful portrait of the "others" who inhabit these spaces. The poetry of her images records those who search for ease in a confused world. 0Exhibition: Musée d'Art Moderne, Saint-Etienne, France.

In the wake of the 25 January revolution and the coup that followed in 2013, Egyptian bookstores recorded a significant increase in demand for books by and about the Muslim Brotherhood. However, despite the burgeoning literature on the Brotherhood, knowledge about the movement is still rather limited, particularly with regard to its most strategic tool - media and communications. This book offers a fresh and close look into the communication strategy of the group, focusing on published periodicals, biographies, and websites that represent the voice of the Brotherhood. The book analyses the core mission of the Brotherhood, namely its da?wa (call, invitation to faith) - how it is articulated and how it is defined by the movement as an ideology and a process. Have the media represented a coherent voice of the Brotherhood over the past decades? What can they communicate regarding the Brothers' perception of the needs of their audiences? How have the media served to sustain, preserve, and distinguish the movement for nine decades? The book argues that the Brotherhood media speak with an intermittent voice and deliver an incoherent message whose tone is changeable and fluctuating and cannot be claimed to truly represent the heterogeneity of the group. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach that integrates Media Studies and Social Movement Theory, the book provides a fresh analysis of the Brotherhood movement as an interpretive community and will be a valuable resource for anyone studying Egypt or the Muslim Brotherhood.

A firsthand account and incisive analysis of modern protest, revealing internet-fueled social movements’ greatest strengths and frequent challenges To understand a thwarted Turkish coup, an anti–Wall Street encampment, and a packed Tahrir Square, we must first comprehend the power and the weaknesses of using new technologies to mobilize large numbers of people. An incisive observer, writer, and participant in today’s social movements, Zeynep Tufekci explains in this accessible and compelling book the nuanced trajectories of modern protests—how they form, how they operate differently from past protests, and why they have difficulty persisting in their long-term quests for change. Tufekci speaks from direct experience, combining on-the-ground interviews with insightful analysis. She describes how the internet helped the Zapatista uprisings in Mexico, the necessity of remote Twitter users to organize medical supplies during Arab Spring, the refusal to use bullhorns in the Occupy Movement that started in New York, and the empowering effect of tear gas in Istanbul’s Gezi Park. These details from life inside social movements complete a moving investigation of authority, technology, and culture—and offer essential insights into the future of governance.
