Abstract

Lessons in Perception seeks to clarify notoriously elusive themes of the avant-garde with the use of existing research from the field of psychology. There is a long-standing history of reference to psychological concepts in relation to avant-garde film, such as its unique relationship to memory, visual perception, narrative comprehension, and synesthesia. Yet direct analysis of these topics in light of existing psychological research remains largely unexplored until now. More broadly, the aim of the book is to frame avant-garde filmmaking practice as a form of "practical psychology." In doing so, two principal arguments are proposed: first, that many avant-garde filmmakers draw creative inspiration from their own cognitive and perceptual capacities, and touch on topics explored by actual psychologists; secondly, that as practical psychologists, avant-garde filmmakers provide “lessons in perception” that offer psychological experiences that are largely unrehearsed in commercial cinema.

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

Die Zeit zwischen 1350 und 1470 gehört zu den aus historischer wie künstlerischer Sicht bewegten Zeiten des so genannten Spätmittelalters. Der Band untersucht Kulturaustausch und -innovation in Architektur und Bildender Kunst in diesem Zeitraum anhand von Fallbeispielen aus mehreren europäischen Regionen (Avignon, England, Böhmen, Oberrhein usf.). Dabei geht es um die konkrete Darstellung der Entfaltung einer zunächst schönheitlich-idealisierend, dann mehr und mehr realistisch geprägten Kunst. Dafür werden Bedeutung und Verbindung von Metropolen, Netzwerke von Auftraggebern und Künstlern untersucht, beginnend mit der Regierungszeit Kaiser Karls IV., über einen Schwerpunkt in der englischen Kunst bis hin zu Untersuchungen zur realistischen Malerei der Mitte des 15. Jahrhunderts.

Abstract

Is queer really anti-identitarian? And how is it experienced at the European level? At queer festivals, activists, artists and participants come together to build new forms of sociability and practice their ideals through anti-binary and inclusive idioms of gender and sexuality. These ideals are moreover channeled through a series of organizational and cultural practices that aim at the emergence of queer as a collective identity. Through the study of festivals in Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Copenhagen, and Oslo, this book thoughtfully analyzes the role of activist practices in the building of collective identities for social movement studies as well as the role of festivals as significant repertoires of collective action and sites of identitarian explorations in contemporary Europe.

Abstract

This book focuses on the referendums against water privatisation in Italy and explores how activists took to social media, ultimately convincing twenty-seven million citizens to vote. Investigating the relationship between social movements and internet-related activism during complex campaigns, this book examines how a technological evolution-the increased relevance of social media platforms-affected in very different ways organisations with divergent characteristics, promoting at the same time decentralised communication practices, and new ways of coordinating dispersed communities of people.Matteo Cernison combines and adapts a wide set of methods, from social network analysis to digital ethnography, in order to explore in detail how digital activism and face-to-face initiatives interact and overlap. He argues that the geographical scale of actions, the role played by external media professionals, and the activists' perceptions of digital technologies are key elements that contribute in a significant way to shape the very different communication practices often described as online activism.

Abstract

Why do early films present the Netherlands as a country full of canals and windmills, where people wear traditional costumes and wooden shoes, while industries and modern urban life are all but absent? Where do such visual clichés come from? This study investigates the roots of this imagery in popular visual media ranging from magazines to tourist brochures, from anthropological treatises to advertising trade cards, stereoscopic photographs, picture postcards, magic lantern slide sets and films of early cinema. The book provides an in-depth study of this rich and fascinating corpus of popular visual media that has not been studied before, and the discourses that these images were meant to illustrate. This intermedial approach offers new insights into the emergence of national clichés and the study of stereotypical thinking.

Abstract

This book consists of nine chapters devoted to representations of melancholia in 19th-century art and literature. A noteworthy feature of the book is its use of concepts from later works by Sigmund Freud, Jean Clair, Jean Starobinski, Julia Kristeva and others. Those concepts elucidate further contexts of the notion of melancholia, which are presented not in isolation but juxtaposed with the philosophical background of the concept (starting from Hippocrates and Aristotle). Thus, the book not only provides a survey of images and modes of behaviour of 19th-century individuals, but also discusses the meanings of melancholia as they appeared in European culture over time.
