Internationally renowned contributors from the arts, science & humanities examine this latest revolution of the image and its implications for our contemporary globalized media society…thus a highly recommended read to discover individually.—Pamela C. Scorzin, Journal of Art History—
I was thrilled to read Grau’s and Veigl’s Imagery in the 21st Century and I will use it in my teaching. Imagery in the 21st Century is a fabulous resource for the reflection on contemporary visuality.
, NEW SCHOOL NY, ARTHIST
The authors systematically make comprehensible the challenges of visuality in the 21st century, and for the detailed analysis of concrete problems apply new tools and analysis forms in image science and digital humanities.
, International Journal of Culture Research
The editors demonstrate the importance to recontextualise the latest images with historic art and a poetic need of reinterpreting old optical media for a better understanding and redefinition of the image in its historic dimension.

Even though we have just stepped into the 21st century, the texts in the book are…indispensable reading for the development of visual and media literacy essential for communication and social interaction in a dominantly visual world we live in.

The analphabets of the future will not be those who cannot read, but those who don’t know how to see and understand visually. The anthology Imagery in the 21st Century by Oliver Grau has seen and understood this prophetic writing on the wall by Walter Benjamin.
