Our workshop intends to theoretically and methodologically address aesthetic ‘immersion‘. Which aesthetic factors determine the immersive experience? Which qualities of objects, which artistic strategies, also which sociocultural preconditions and subjective efforts contribute to it? Is it possible to keep critical distance to the experienced context? Does immersion entail social isolation or do forms of collective immersion experiences exist, or is both possible?
Scholars from arts and media studies as well as from philosophy will address these questions from different perspectives and discuss it on the basis of specific objects and situations. Moreover, we want to discuss methodological questions and consider the advantages and problems with empirical or hermeneutic approaches or discourse analysis.
