About the SPP

The DFG Priority Program (SPP) “The Digital Image” combines exemplary projects from a multi-perspective point of view and addresses the central role that the image plays in the complex process of the digitization of knowledge in theory and practice. 

The 12 projects explore various topics and aspects around the digital image. The aim of the SPP is also a close networking and productive exchange between the individual research projects.
