Conceptual Refractions – The Aesthetics of the Book

The digitalization has called into question the continued utility of print media, given the ease of accessibility and dissemination of digital publication formats. At the same time, however, the special importance given to its digital properties also highlighted the book’s significance as an item of social and cultural production. Following this line of argument, the panel aims to assess from a philosophical, historical and artistic point of view the social and cultural dimensions of the book. In so doing, particular attention will be given to questions regarding materiality, space, time, network and communities, and images.
