ILAYDA ELSA KOHL
Term Paper Art Science & Media Philosophy
Based on the seminar "Desire and its Discontents" I wrote a term paper, which I developed further and translated into English for the new publication of the Department of Art History and Media Philosophy "Schwarm". Media Philosophy "Swarm", edited and translated into English. It is based on texts by sociologist Eva Illouz, from which I explain the concept of romantic utopia, discuss the process of romanticizing commodities, and examine the representation of relationships and love in film and television.
Title: The Romantic Utopia in Capitalism and Its Representation in Film and TV
Medium: Academic paper/ Essay
Supervising Prof.: Sami Khatib
