Abstract

„Wäre die Philosophie auch nur eine Stunde der Mühe wert, wenn sie uns nicht für das Leben rüstete?“ Gezielten Schrittes entwirft der französische Philosoph Étienne Souriau in diesem dicht gedrängten Buch eine Grammatik der Existenz. Im Fokus steht nicht nur ihre Theorie, sondern auch die tatsächliche Ausübung der „Kunst des Existierens“. Wie Gilles Deleuze und William James vertritt Souriau dabei die These eines existenziellen Pluralismus: Es gibt Phänomene, Dinge, das Virtuelle, fiktionale Wesen – die Existenz ist polyphon. Souriaus radikale Herangehensweise hat auch Bruno Latour und Isabelle Stengers entscheidend beeinflusst. In ihrer ausführlichen Einleitung zu Souriaus Text von 1943 und dem ebenfalls zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache veröffentlichten Vortrag „Über den Modus der Existenz des zu vollbringenden Werks“ (1956) zeigt sich eindrucksvoll die Aktualität seines Denkens.

Abstract

The rise of literary theory spawned the rise of anti-aestheticism, so that even for cultural theorists, discussions concerning aesthetics were often carried out in a critical shorthand that failed to engage with the particularity of the work of art, much less the specificities of aesthetic experience. This book introduces the notion of a new aestheticism - 'new' insofar as it identifies a turn taken by a number of important contemporary thinkers towards the idea that focussing on the specifically aesthetic impact of a work of art or literature has the potential to open radically different ways of thinking about identity, politics and culture. The appearance of a new aestheticism at a moment that is often termed 'post-theoretical' is a direct index of the extent to which, as 'theory' now enters a more reflective phase, there is an increased willingness among critics and philosophers to consider the ways in which literary and cultural theory often overlooked key aspects of its reliance on philosophical aesthetics. With its impressive array of contributors, The new aestheticism will be of particular interest to students and scholars of literature, philosophy and cultural studies.

Abstract

This new, completely revised and re-written edition of aesthetics and subjectivity brings up to date the original book's account of the path of German philosophy from Kant, via Fichte and Holderlin, the early Romantis, Schelling, Hegel, Schleimacher, to Nietzsche, in view of recent historical research and contemporary arguments in philosophy and theory in the humanities. The original book helped make subjectivity, aesthetics, music and language a significant part of debate in the humanity. Bowie develops the approaches to these areas in relation to new theoretical advances which bridge the divide between the continental and analytical traditions of philosophy. In light of the huge growth of interest in German philosophy as a resource for re-thinking both literary and cultural theory, and contemporary philosophy, aesthetics and subjectivity will be indispensable reading for students and teachers in all humanities subjects, from literature, to philosophy, to music and beyond.

Abstract

​This book investigates the nature of aesthetic experience and aesthetic objects. Written by leading philosophers, psychologists, literary scholars and semioticians, the book addresses two intertwined issues. The first is related to the phenomenology of aesthetic experience: The understanding of how human beings respond to artworks, how we process linguistic or visual information, and what properties in artworks trigger aesthetic experiences. The examination of the properties of aesthetic experience reveals essential aspects of our perceptual, cognitive, and semiotic capacities. The second issue studied in this volume is related to the ontology of the work of art: Written or visual artworks are a specific type of objects, containing particular kinds of representation which elicit a particular kind of experience. The research question explored is: What properties in artful objects trigger this type of experience, and what characterizes representation in written and visual artworks? The volume sets the scene for state-of-the-art inquiries in the intersection between the psychology and ontology of art. The investigations of the relation between the properties of artworks and the characteristics of aesthetic experience increase our insight into what art is. In addition, they shed light on essential properties of human meaning-making in general.

"Schönheit gibt es nur noch im Kampf" - Zum Verhältnis von Gewalt und Ästhetik im italienischen Futurismus

Abstract

„Man schreit vor Angst und Entsetzen. Diese Bilder sind das Innerste, Erschütterndste, Grandioseste, Unfaßbarste, das seit Menschengedenken gemacht worden ist.“ Der Künstler Hugo Ball (1886–1927) zeigte sich 1913 nach seinem Besuch des Kunstsalons Emil Richter in Dresden wahrhaft überwältigt angesichts der dort ausgestellten Gemälde der Futuristen. Auch andernorts riefen die Künstler Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Giacomo Balla, Luigi Russolo und Gino Severini teils heftige Reaktionen hervor. Gegründet wurde die italienische Avantgardebewegung 1909 mit der Veröffentlichung des Manifests Le Futurisme durch den Dichter Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. In der darin aufgestellten Behauptung „Schönheit gibt es nur noch im Kampf. Ein Werk ohne aggressiven Charakter kann kein Meisterwerk sein“ wird Gewalt als ideologische Basis der Bewegung bekundet. War die ganzheitliche Erneuerung der Kunst und Kultur Italiens das Ziel der Futuristen, so teilten sie die Überzeugung, dass diese nur auf der (ideellen) Zerstörung tradierter kultureller und gesellschaftlicher Werte gründen könne. Die vorliegende Untersuchung geht dem Ursprung des Themas der Gewalt in den futuristischen Manifesten aus der Geisteshaltung des späten 19. Jahrhunderts nach und analysiert die Art und Weise, wie die futuristischen Künstler das Thema der Gewalt auf ihre bildlichen Werke übertrugen. Reaktionen von Betrachtern wie Hugo Ball werden herangezogen, um zu untersuchen, inwiefern die Kunst im Futurismus als Kommunikationsmittel gesellschaftlicher Forderungen und ästhetischer Inhalte der futuristischen Ideologie eingesetzt wurde.

Abstract

The Book of Job has held a central role in defining the project of modernity from the age of Enlightenment until today. Why has Job`s response to disaster become a touchstone for modern reflections on catastrophic events? This volume engages this question and offers new perspectives on the tragic bent of the Book of Job, on its dramatic irony, on Job`s position as mourner, and the unique representation of the Joban body in pain.

Abstract

Crisi, emergenze, catastrofi. I fatti dell’11 settembre 2001 hanno inaugurato un millennio in cui sembrano intensificarsi guerre e conflitti, pandemie, emergenze ecologiche, e il nuovo disordine mondiale genera impoverimento e disuguaglianze, esaspera paure personali e collettive. Con un approccio interdisciplinare che non trascura cenni storici, antropologici e sociologici, il libro propone l’analisi di un ampio ventaglio di opere realizzate da artisti di vari paesi del mondo nell’ultimo quindicennio su emergenze e crisi planetarie. Una produzione “deterritorializzata”, in cui la pratica e l’etica del cinema del reale sono recuperate in modo innovativo, tra le estetiche incerte degli smartphone e l’eredità del cinema sperimentale e della videoarte in dialogo col digitale.

Abstract

Protestors across the world use aesthetics in order to communicate their ideas and ensure their voices are heard. This book looks at protest aesthetics, which we consider to be the visual and performative elements of protest, such as images, symbols, graffiti, art, as well as the choreography of protest actions in public spaces. Through the use of social media, protestors have been able to create an alternative space for people to engage with politics that is more inclusive and participatory than traditional politics. This volume focuses on the role of visual culture in a highly mediated environment and draws on case studies from Europe, Thailand, South Africa, USA, Argentina, and the Middle East in order to demonstrate how protestors use aesthetics to communicate their demands and ideas. It examines how digital media is harnessed by protestors and argues that all protest aesthetics are performative and communicative.

Abstract

‘Soul of the Documentary’ offers a groundbreaking new approach to documentary cinema. Ilona Hongisto stirs current thinking by suggesting that the work of documentary films is not reducible to representing what already exists. By close-reading a diverse body of films - from ‘The Last Bolshevik’ to ‘Grey Gardens’ - Hongisto shows how documentary cinema intervenes in the real by framing it and creatively contributes to its perpetual unfolding. The emphasis on framing brings new urgency to the documentary tradition and its objectives, and provokes significant novel possibilities for thinking about the documentary's ethical and political potentials in the contemporary world.
