July 10-12, 2016, we hosted a followup workshop, where researchers from the 2015 VCM Summer School return to Aarhus to dive back into the data collected for Northside 2015. Here, we continue to talk about what it means to conduct ‘messy’ ethnography of digital materialities across a number of scenes of culture.
The workshop is partly virtual and partly onsite in Aarhus at Moesgaard Museum, where we meet for two days to work with previously gathered material from the Northside music festival. The question remains: ~How do we evaluate large-scale events as lived experiences? Our ambition in this two day intensive workshop was to create a platform for the continued discussion of how we organise and make sense of the seemingly endless streams of images, sounds, and fragments of both physical and digital information that characterize and constitute contemporary social life. This workshop involves presentations of post production video, discussions, and bringing additional provocations to the table.
Location: Moesgaard Museum, Department of Visual Anthropology
Facilitators: Viktor Baskin Coffey and Devrim Umut Aslan
Onsite participants: Sarah Pink, Annette Markham, Debora Lanzeni, Karen Waltorp, Katrin Tiidenberg
Visuality, Culture, Method
This is part of a series of articles by members of the Aarhus University Summer School on Visuality, Culture, & Method. Developed by Anne Marit Waade (Cultural Transformations Research Unit, Aarhus University); Sarah Pink (Digital Ethnography Research Center, RMIT, Australia), and Annette Markham (Digital Living Research Commons, Aarhus University), this PhD school is held bi-annually, typically at Aarhus University in Denmark. Occasionally, the course travels and is conducted by guest professors.
