Academic studies in the field of art history and visual culture try to address the shift in different terms and talk about ‘visions of modernity’, ‘technological modernity’, ‘iconocentrism’, ‘visual mediation, ‘the hermeneutic of seeing’, ‘the rhetoric of images’, ‘imagistic signifiers’, ‘visual narratives and histories’, ‘socialness of images’ ‘traumatic realism’,  ‘the language of films’, and the like.
