Panel 1: Circulating Images
In a discussion, Roman Marek , using YouTube as an example, will give a short overview of the phenomenon of video platforms and then to debate this form of community building with a panel of invited guests. YouTube with its billion users is the biggest platform and it has developed into a major enterprise of the Google Corporation. Clip esthetics, which was initially constrained by limited server capacities, has long since become a visual culture in its own right. EMARE artists such as Steve Reinke used it in their work. Using video examples, he discusses various individual works and channels of artists, freelance authors and amateurs.
