RESEARCH PROJECT ON THE “ATTENTION STRATEGIES OF VIDEO ACTIVISM ON THE SOCIAL WEB”
about the project
How can political videos from civil society effectively assert themselves on the Social Web against the superiority of advertising, entertainment and propaganda? This is the aim of a joint research project funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and conducted by the FU Berlin, the University of Bonn and Film University Babelsberg.
This website documents some of our work and offers short analyses of selected video clips (“Videos in Close Up”) as well as links to similar events and projects and a selected bibliography.
The project is made possible by the collaboration between Prof. Dr Jens Eder (Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf), Prof. Dr Britta Hartmann (Rheinische Friedrichs-Wilhelm-University Bonn) and Dr Chris Tedjasukmana (Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz). It is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation.
