Seminar Report: Slow Media

November 23rd, 2014

Report on the activities and contributions of the seminar on Slow Media. 

The seminar “Slow Media” identified the museum as a possible space for engaging with the aspect of slowness in media. The museum is not addressed as an institution possessing an intended purpose given by a larger context, but as a place in which to engage with objects, collections, exhibits, and other media. Furthermore, it offers a space for exploring concepts of the Anthropocene through virtual galleries showcasing exercises in active listening and philosophical reflection.
