The Croatian Writers’ Society, the theory, culture and visual arts journal Tvrđa, and the Zagreb Centre for Visual Studies organized an interdisciplinary symposium „Media Image of the World: From the production of Reality to the Power apparatus“  which was held in Zagreb from 13th to 14th June, 2012.

Media-Via president PhD Vesna Srnic presented her doctoral disertation thesis “The Electronic media and Aesthetics in Postfeminist theory” and was engaged  in a very dynamic discussion.

“Newly established post-discipline socio-humanistic sciences from 1990’s (Cultural studies, Visual studies, Mediology, Information sciences, Theories of Image and New Media, Philosophy of Media, Sociology of Cyberculture, Communication theories) make an attempt to create a new mental map for understanding the escaped Reality, which seems more and more like Entropy and emergencies of the world, and less like those Realities which were described by ideas from clasical modern Epistemology, well known as Subject, Representation, Nation-State, fixed Identity, Suvereignty. Symposium will try to establish an interaction between various subjects/actors in Media dialogue and discourse.”

(From the foreword of PhD Zarko Paic)
