Here are a few pictures from the masterclass on “Cultural Analytics” that Lev Manovich (CUNY) gave on 23 September at the University of Potsdam. The workshop, which was attended by academics and activists from all over Germany, was the second such organized as part of our research group, a series of events we hope to continue next year. Manovich’s presentation focused on visualization techniques for large cultural collections of visual data, among them paintings, photographs, and comics, as well as the principles underlying his approach. The slides for his presentation can be found at: http://lab.softwarestudies.com/2015/07/analyzing-big-visual-data-new-slides.html. Thanks to Lev for an inspiring talk and everyone for questions and discussion!
