How can young people and students consciously and actively deal with digital media and social networks? Are we at the mercy of these media or can we win back some of the "sovereignty of interpretation" by shaping parts of the net ourselves? Example: Selfies are ok, but what about "otherfies" - are they dying out?

We explore the impact of digital media and social networks on future students. The keywords are globalisation and internationality, communication in social networks, the influence of digital media and social networks on art and design.
