“Visual Engagements. Image Practices and Falconry”
convened by Yannis Hadjinicolaou

The Workshop „Visual Engagements. Image Practices and Falconry“ will mainly address common intersections between culture and nature such as Seeing/Not Seeing, Perspective (for instance Drones), Simulations (Material/Symbol), questions on Political Iconography, materials such as feathers as well as the Migration of Objects and Images. Falconry, is a living heritage, which is a deeply cultural practice at the same time.
Why do treatises in Early modern Period consider seeing as a form of hunting? How is this metaphor as well as flying itself manifested in images? And what is the relation to this since birds and especially falcons have a very sharp vision as well as space orientation? What are the common points between image practices and the iconic power of Falconry?
In addition to these theoretical and present-day considerations, artists working on Falconry will have a dialogue with a professional Arab falconer and a Bedouin poet, adding a further central point to the workshop namely the connection between theory and practice.
