Wednesday, March 8, 2017
Whereas media archaeologists have been extremely critical of processes of canon-building (especially when it comes to old film history’s beloved ‘classics’ and ‘masterpieces’), on another, more conceptual level of its discursive formation it can be seen as rather canon-driven, drawing on a firm set of thinkers and cultural theorists, from Sigmund Freud, Henri Bergson and Walter Benjamin to Marshall McLuhan, Michel Foucault and Friedrich Kittler.
