Abstract

Originating from the monumental ensemble of the arcade court of Vienna University, this thematic issue is dedicated to the traditon of academic memorials in a european-wide comparison. The first part of the volume focusses on the monuments of the Vienna University in context of development history and changing cultural and political framework conditions. The second part shows the european perspektive and focusses on the ancient and early modern era origins of the hall of honour, and the the different manifestation in chosen european countries until today. The issue contributes with its diverse methodical articles in a significant way to a discursive discussion on traditon and currency of academic memorials.

Abstract

Das Buch widmet sich dem britischen Bildhauer John Gibson (1790-1866) und seiner Auseinandersetzung mit Antonio Canova (1757-1822). Der nach Rom emigrierte Bildhauer zählte zu den einflussreichsten Künstlern seiner Generation, war Mitglied in elf internationalen Akademien und Begründer der „Roman School of Sculpture“. Zu seinen Auftraggebern zählten Alessandro Torlonia, Graf Erwein von Schönborn sowie Königin Victoria und Prinz Albert. Untersucht werden Gibsons römische Lehrjahre, seine Rolle im künstlerischen Transfer und seine Inszenierungsstrategien als „britischer Phidias“. Die kritische Auswertung des umfassenden Quellenmaterials liefert wichtige Erkenntnisse zu Gibsons Leben und Werk und darüber hinaus neue Einblicke in weitere Themenfelder der Skulptur des 19. Jahrhunderts.

Abstract

"About projections" gives insights into world maps, their ways of representation and the associated worldviews. On the one hand, the projection is presented as an ideal projection in the sense of a worldview that describes prevailing mental images, values, order principles, ways of thinking or explanatory models of the world. On the other hand, the focus is on the geometric projection that underlies world maps: every world map faces the difficulty of displaying the spherical surface in a two-dimensional plane. In a reconstruction various paradigmatic worldviews are shown on the basis of world maps. In a deconstruction, conventional ones are contrasted by alternative world maps. The wide variety of possible world maps shows that world maps do not represent a status quo, but are merely a subjective interpretation of the world at a given time, which remain subject to constant upheavals.
