From bone metastases to water supply

one of the central issues in the history of art. This is the topic that the Humanities Centre "History of the Image and Aesthetics of Evidence" will tackle, in an innovative way. The researchers' approach is to conceive of the image as both a representation of reality and an independently acting presence. It is only by doing so that the central function of images can be adequately described. Their aim is to illustrate the various historical and systematic forms in which image contents are mediated. The researchers therefore plan to develop a more complex idea of the image, which can incorporate the original power of the visual form, but which at the same time also respects the linguistic, cultural, social and political embedding of images.

Modern societies can be understood as dynamic growth societies. Their relative stability is based on rising economic and technical efficiency and growing material wealth. At the present time however, a change can be detected. What would the consequences be if rising growth and wealth collapsed and instead, economic and technical growth triggered crises? The sociology-based Humanities Centre "Land Acquisition, Acceleration, Activation. Dynamics and (De-)Stabilisation of Modern Growth Societies" will study borders and problems of legitimation. The inter-relations between dynamic self-stabilisation and the legitimation principles of modern societies are to be analysed in a new way.
