This course will offer literature and exercises to the topic of "Leerstellen / interpretational gaps". Two perspectives will be discussed here: 

- the reader response criticism (Rezeptionsästhetik, e.g. by Wolfgang Iser)

- comic theory approach (Scott McCloud)

The goal of this module is to understand the theoretical approach that frames the concept of "Leerstellen/Gaps", and, furthermore, to be able to use it as a tool for your own Master design project (MA thesis / artefact) and your MA exhibition as well.
