Earlier this year, Steffen Roth and I guest-edited a special issue of CHK on ‘Media Effects’. We invited artist Florian Meisenberg to design it. Florian came up with some great ideas – images from his sketch book, ‘found situations’, animation stills etc. I believe his images would have made quite a difference, but it wasn’t meant to be: the CHK team decided for a more conventional solution. ‘Fair enough’ – but why not add his beautiful cover proposal and the illustrations affiliated with the texts to the already existing issue? So here they are.

  1. Foreword (Markus Heidingsfelder)

2. The Mediality of Looseness (Urs Stäheli)

3. Listening to Media in Cultural Theory, Sociology, and Management (Dirk Baecker)

4. Digitality as a Medium of Communication (Achim Broszwieski)

5. Mousing, Swiping, Thinking (Peter Fuchs)

6. New Media and Socio-Cultural Formations (Jan Fuhse)
