New Academic Website: Global Visual Politics

After more than ten years from the creation of "The Visual Archive Project of the Global Imaginary", the new academic website dedicated to global politics is online.

The Image as a Political Theory

We live in a world dominated by images and in which images shape political events and how we understand them. Indeed, visual images not only represent and reflect the world, but also affect and reshape the embedded ideologies and the connected systems of values they carry out. In that sense, visual images produce theory by playing a strategic role in the symbolic and social construction of people‚Äôs historical consciousness. Continuously produced by phone cameras and professional cameras, drones, satellites and surveillance cameras, visual images are everywhere, able to record, represent, and display almost everything. Analyzed for scientific purposes or stored in archives to be further interpreted for academic research or security reasons, in the Global Age of the digital revolution the continuous flow of visual images is rapidly shared and consumed by people, mostly in the different materiality of the Internet and of the social web. Yet, there is a dearth of research addressing the political power of images in constructing global politics. The Global Visual Politics is a digital media archive that collects visual images related to a broad range of political themes, such as protest, peace, violence, religion and gender. In accepting the methodological challenges and the symbolic power of the visual, the archive addresses the images as political theory. A case study in itself, the project aims to investigate how visual images respond to global political events and to what extent political images displayed in their own right contribute to the emergence of a global visual culture, under present conditions of globalization. Through a theoretical and empirical discussion, the project addresses the following research questions: ‚ÄúDo visual images produce theory?‚ÄĚ; ‚ÄúWhat is the symbolic power of an image?‚ÄĚ; ‚ÄúDo images have power, or are we giving power to images?‚ÄĚ; ‚ÄúHow do visual images respond to global political events and how do they shape them?‚ÄĚ.

We hope that the website can of some interest for you and that you will enjoy it.
