Politehnica University of Bucharest

Vortrag von Marie-Noëlle Yazdanpanah bei NECS 2022 „Epistemic Media: Atlas Archive Network“ in Bucharest als Teil des Panels „Educational film as practice: epistemic settings and procedures”

The presentation focuses on cinematic representations of alpinism and its multimedia performance practice in the popular education programmes of the Viennese Urania, using the example of the semi-professional amateur film “Mit Steigeisen und Eispickel” (AT c. 1934) and Arnold Fanck’s early mountain film and crowd-pleaser “Im Kampf mit dem Berge” (D 1921).
