    “The contemporary world is hypervisual,” says media theorist Nicholas Mirzoeff. Television, computers, iPads, the Internet, and cell phones are associated with the increased distribution and reception of still and moving images. The global rise of cell phones in particular has enabled the proliferation of what filmmaker Hito Steyerl calls “poor images”—low-resolution film footage made all the more popular by platforms such as YouTube. This panel invites media scholars, curators, and artists to discuss how this endless stream of degraded, pixelated images, videos, and films has significantly altered the way we experience and understand our contemporary politicized world.

    Participants include: Miriam Ghani, artist and writer; Lev Manovich, The Graduate Center; Nicholas Mirzoeff, New York University; Christiane Paul, The New School, and New Media Arts at The Whitney Museum of American Art; McKenzie Wark, The New School. Organized and moderated by Natalie Musteata, Art History, The Graduate Center.

    Cosponsored by the Film Studies Certificate Program, the PhD Program in Art History and The Center for the Humanities
