Abstract

David Smith, who is known in the United States mostly for his abstract sculptures, starts in 1936 with his series Medals for Dishonor (1936-40). By using surrealistic motifs he is showing within this series the horrors of war. Compared with artworks of leading surrealists at that time you can see that there is also a change of iconography: Motifs of violence increase. Could Smiths series of medals therefore be seen as an example for the change of iconography in Surrealism within the 1930s?

Abstract

After Paris' awakening as judge, the legend finds its way into various literary genres. The papers are unanimous that they hold lessons for the reader. Therefore, the duplex sententia is assigned to the picturesque testimony. The artists, however, found their own ways of hinting the observer to the multiple layers of meaning. Simultaneously the value of didactic function of portraits from the 17th c. has to be relativized, as the eroticism made a significant contribution to the popularization.

Abstract

Springen, Fallen, Spritzen und Explodieren sind Flüchtigkeitsphänomene, die in jüngerer Geschichte durch mediale Inszenierungen Sensationswert erhalten haben und unser kulturelles Bildbewusstsein prägen. Auf der Grundlage einer kulturwissenschaftlich orientierten Bildwissenschaft rekonstruiert der Autor Ursprung und Wandel von Plötzlichkeitsmotiven, um die daraus entstehenden Semantiken und Faszinationseffekte zu ermitteln. Ausgehend von Beispielen aus der wissenschaftlichen, populärkulturellen, journalistischen und Mode-Ikonografie werden Produktionen des visuell Außergewöhnlichen verfolgt sowie überraschende Verbindungen zwischen unterschiedlichen Visualitätskulturen aufgezeigt. Ein reiches Bildmaterial belegt eindrucksvoll, wie Aufzeichnungsmedien an der Herstellung von modernen Ereigniserfahrungen teilhaben.
