Text and image converge in diagrams; diagrams operate beyond the opposition between text and image. The KOKO Webinar on Text-Image Parergon invites artists, designers and theoreticians to discuss the hidden dimensions of this thesis. Starting point for the discussions are contributions to the KOKO Space Text-Image Parergon. This online space is generated by a confluence of social media posts, their reflections by review processes and supplemented by commissioned contributions and driven by an interest in image based forms of artistic and academic discourse.

The first webinar in the series will be held on:

9 March 2021

• Time: GMT, 9:00 – 10:00am | Zurich, 10:00 – 11:00am | Hong Kong, 5:00 – 6:00pm
• Event: Chronotopologies
Daniel Irrgang (Weizenbaum Institute, Berlin) in conversation with Nils Röller (ZHdK)

Chronotopologies add the spatial dimension to the time scale in Historiography by acknowledging the epistemic and heuristic potential of maps and their visual power to synchronize elements.
