Where does human existence begin? Where does it end? How are the shifts in conventional distinctions concerning daily life – such as those between man and woman, self and other, human and non-human, nature and technology, past and future – to be dealt with? The GRAMA lecture series debates current positions of media anthropology. International researchers presents on four evenings in the winter semester their latest research.


The doctoral candidates of the GRAMA invite to four film evenings in the winter semester 2021/22. The screenings take place in the Lichthaus Kino. The films ask questions about anthropomedial entanglements. There will be an introduction and room for debates after the screenings.


09 to 11 February 2022

Classical Philosophy deals with questions of truth, of right and wrong and the beautiful. It sees itself as the expert field in which the most important things in life are fundamentally negotiated. Media philosohy instead focuses on the allegedly irrelevant aspects and settings of life. It is based on the assumption that it is precisely the trivialities of life and such artifacts and media that are not taken seriously in general that provide a contemporary philosophy of everyday life today.

Lorenz Engell and Christiane Voss present their new book and discuss it with Jan Völker.

The presentation will take place online. Link to BigBlueButton:
