(Lecture in German)

Today, we encounter split screens in a wide variety of media configurations: on the displays of cell phones, on computer screens, and in video conferences. But they also have a long tradition on the cinema screen. Here, a development can be traced that fans out from the logic of the central perspective and the self-identical subject of film to the heterogeneous and dynamic image networks of split screens.

In his lecture, Malte Hagener grasps this branching out from a (film) historical perspective and argues thus for understanding split screens as a media-specific logic that reaches far beyond film into the most diverse medial arrangements. The film THE BOSTON STRANGLER  serves him as a historical example, which will be shown after the lecture.
