Overview

The contributions to this volume concern the question of the relationship of the visual sciences to visual culture studies. Of particular importance was the question of the political function of these approaches. The volume attempts to relay the present discussion and invite readers to participate in ongoing debates. Theoretical homogeneity is not the goal - there are contributions that support the main suppositions of the visual sciences, and there are contributions that expressly contradict that position. Those approaches supporting visual culture studies accuentuate the political dimension of pictures and the theories that reflect it, whose development on the other hand has been associated with the social and economic changes of the last decades.
