« Le style en philosophie est tendu vers ces trois pôles, le concept ou de nouvelles manières de penser, le percept ou de nouvelles manières de voir et d’entendre, l’affect ou de nouvelles manières d’éprouver. C’est la trinité philosophique, la philosophie comme opéra : il faut les trois pour faire le mouvement. » 

Gilles Deleuze

Welcome to my website!

My name is Ania Mauruschat, I am a German media scholar (aesthetics, theory & culture) and lecturer. Trained as a journalist and as an editor and educated in the humanities and social sciences in Munich, I worked from 2002 to 2012 full-time for the press and public radio stations. Mainly I focused on the ramifications of digitization on art, literature and sciences. This lead to a special research and work collaboration with the radio drama & media art department of the Bavarian broadcasting station Bayern2 (BR), amongst others resulting in the 15 part interview series „suchmaschine wissen macht: Chancen & Risiken der Digitalisierung“ (2007/08).

From 2012 to 2014 I worked as a scientific assistant, lecturer and project manager at the chair for media aesthetics at the University of Basel (Switzerland). Since October 2017 I am elected speaker of the consortium Auditive Culture & Sound Studies of the German Society of Media Studies. Since January 2018 I am member of the doctoral programme „Epistemologies of Aesthetic Practices“ at the Collegium Helveticum in Zurich, Switzerland and since April 2019 I am assistant of the president of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ästhetik. The title of my PhD project is „Radiophonics, Noise & Understanding. Towards an Epistomology of Radio Art“.

My main fields of research are media theory, digitization, sound and radio studies, aesthetics, epistemologies of artistic practices, artistic research, environmental humanities and energy studies, catastrophes in art and culture, gender and media.

I live in Switzerland and online.
