"Between Art and the Practicalities of Media Education"

Theodor Adorno, writes, “The value of an artwork is not measured by how well it communicates, but on the contrary by how much it resists pre-given standards of judgment.” As educators, we teach art disciplines that was once concerned with the evaluation of visual art according to rational principles, relied on notions of artistic genius and other self-motivated attributes: talent, perception, interpretation, and forming theory in creative practices. 

What is the place of media/photographic art in the world today? Do we meet the aspirations and economic realities of our students? Are the current curriculum models still necessary or needs to be broadened with marketable skills? Are the pedagogical and curriculum standards coincide with advanced technology, mass-information, and the multinational capitalism reflect a shrinking job market? Are art departments preparing students to be flexible and proactive in a diminished industry? This roundtable discussion is to present teaching models that address these challenges.

Daniel Mirer: ArchitorSpace_Vacancy


Summer (2014) I was fortunate to have two concurrent and ongoing photographic projects.


Throughout the month of June I was in an Artist residency Program “STARRY NIGHT” Residency Program in the rural town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. During this residency I was working on the photography project “Indifferent West”. Indifferent West is a photographic series that investigates the western American landscape and its touristic architectural sites. Through this project, I photograph the found and sentimental representations of the mythic frontier and the the center of American iconify. The images are of tourist sites, places that are familiar and cliche but that also cite that lack of a picturesque image of ideal landscape.

For the last year Katharina Bosse, University of Bielefeld (DE), and I have been creating images of “Thingstãtten” locations.  Thingstãtten is a term used to define outdoor Nazi cult theaters during the 1933-1945


This July and Aug I have received a small start-up funding from the German government to create a body of work that will take a few years to complete. The funding I received is for me this summer with collaborative partner Katharina Bosse to photograph and create video images of “Thingstãtten in Deutschland". 


This project is intended to be exhibited in Germany at government museums and universities. Katharina and I hope create interest with other universities and museums to exhibit this project where we are raising funds to create a book of theThingstãtten” locations with writer Dr. Gerwin Strobl from Cardiff University (UK).
