Abstract

Images are more than just objects to be observed. In all periods they have had a direct influence on the way we perceive things and act, in particular in the course of ceremonies. In this volume, various archaeological disciplines consider a number of case studies of the relationships between works of art, spaces and actions in past cultures? including the Nasca-Palpa glyphs in South America, the Stone Age site of G

Abstract

How to account for the peculiar attraction of certain photos? How to deal with the specific use of images in particular contexts? Monika Schwärzler presents a variety of photographic case studies exploring visual phenomena from the point of view of media analysis as well as from sociological, aesthetic, and psychoanalytic perspectives. The topics range from a new reading of Thomas Struth’s street photographs to CERN photos with their charged rhetoric, from the assault of photographic close-ups to speculations on an anonymous slide collection featuring a woman with an ever-present white handbag. The book is intended for an audience receptive to the analytical appeal of images, prepared to go beyond what can be taken at face value.

Abstract

Die Choreographin Meg Stuart arbeitet mit Tänzern, Schauspielern, Musikern, Videokünstlern und bildenden Künstlern zusammen. Auf diese Weise entstehen Choreographien, die weniger auf der reinen Tanzbewegung aufbauen als vielmehr auf Relationen zwischen Körperbewegung, Stimme, Videobild, Kostüm und Raumanordnung. Die Unterteilung der Bühne, die Gleichzeitigkeit und das Nebeneinander von unabhängigen Momenten, die Bewegung auf der Stelle heben die Linearität des Verlaufs auf. Die Choreographien entgrenzen sich in Richtung Bewegungs- und Sprachstudie, Installation und Tableau vivant. Die Studie betrachtet diese Merkmale erstmals unter dem Gesichtspunkt eines erweiterten Bildbegriffs. Dabei werden Themen wie die Projektion, die Blicklenkung, die Pose, der Affekt und die Duration ausgearbeitet. Die Frage nach Bildqualitäten in der Ordnung von Bewegung und Choreographie geht über die Fokussierung auf Meg Stuart hinaus und liefert einen wichtigen Beitrag für die Bild- und Kunstwissenschaft.

Abstract

Marina Grishakova belongs to the younger generation scholars of the Tartu-Moscow school of semiotics. Her book is part of a semio-narratological tradition of a single author or a single work research that tackles issues of wider theoretical import: applicability of the concept of “modeling” in the humanities, theory of mimesis and the function of experimental literature in (post)modernist culture. By drawing on Y. Lotman’s conception of artistic models, the book adopts the semiotic perspective on modeling as an open-ended heuristic process underlying the logic of discovery and creative thinking. The book discusses the models of time and memory in modernist culture (Nietzsche’s and Bergson’s philosophy of time, Minkowski’s research on the psychopathological types of temporality) and their relevance to Nabokov’s fiction; popular-scientific notions of serialism and the fourth dimension; thematizations of the observer in modernist philosophy and arts; visual “prostheses” and “machines” (Eco), particularly the “camera vision” metaphor, its relation to Bergson’s notion of automatism and the popular idea of the criminal use of hypnosis. Vision is thematized also as a means of seduction and noncoercive control. Even before Foucault, Baudrillard and other critics of modernity, Nabokov noticed that advertising, political propaganda and erotic seduction alike employ implicit forms of suggestion. The book revises Rorty’s dilemma of “autonomy” and “solidarity” as applied to Nabokov’s work and offers new readings. It considers categories of narrative poetics as forms of cultural encoding that broaden and transform reader’s modes of perception and sense-making. Micro-models active in certain contexts or in the works of certain authors function as mobile interfaces between individual sensibilities and complex cultural chrono- and spatio-types where time and space take on conceptual meaning.

Abstract

Automated facial recognition algorithms are increasingly intervening in society. This book offers a unique analysis of these algorithms from a critical visual culture studies perspective. The first part of this study examines the example of an early facial recognition algorithm called »eigenface« and traces a history of the merging of statistics and vision. The second part addresses contemporary artistic engagements with facial recognition technology in the work of Thomas Ruff, Zach Blas, and Trevor Paglen. This book argues that we must take a closer look at the technology of automated facial recognition and claims that its forms of representation are embedded with visual politics. Even more significantly, this technology is redefining what it means to see and be seen in the contemporary world.&#xD;

Abstract

»Optische Magie« ist der Titel einer Reihe von Publikationen, die im 17. Jahrhundert von jesuitischen Gelehrten verfasst wurden, um das Gebiet der Optik mittels kunstfertiger Inszenierungen darzustellen. Durch neuartige Medien wie der Laterna magica oder der Anamorphose wurden Illusionen erzeugt, mit denen ein Publikum unterhalten und gebildet werden sollte. Dieser besondere Umgang mit visuellen Techniken durch Autoren wie Schott und Kircher wird in der vorliegenden Studie in medien- und kulturgeschichtlicher Hinsicht untersucht und als Teil einer barocken Kultur des Scheins bestimmt, die sich zwischen Repräsentation, Manipulation und Schaulust bewegt hat.

Abstract

Unter »Tableau vivant« (Lebende Bilder) versteht man ein Gesellschaftsspiel des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts, das darin bestand, Gemälde durch lebende Personen nachzustellen. Diderot und Goethe begeisterten sich für diese - heute längst vergessene - Bilderpraxis. Umso überraschender ist es, die anachronistische Kunst nicht nur in Stummfilmen, sondern auch in gegenwärtigen Spielfilmen wieder zu entdecken. Was passiert mit dem Filmbild, wenn es sich auf die Struktur unbewegter, nach Gemälden gestellter Bilder einlässt und diese verlebendigt? Das Buch widmet sich diesem ungewöhnlichen Bildphänomen aus historischer und bildwissenschaftlicher Sicht und zeigt auf, welche subversiven Kräfte durch die Gemäldenachstellungen im Film freigesetzt werden und zu welchen diegetischen Erweiterungen diese führen können. Die interdisziplinär ausgerichtete Studie versucht dabei, zwischen Kunstgeschichte und Filmwissenschaft zu vermitteln.

Abstract

What happens when the functional principle of the human ear is translated into the field of nanotechnology, a map depicting epistemological architecture is sketched as a lecture performance, or when researchers from over 25 disciplines critically engage with structures and models? Which new discoveries are brought about through the collaboration between biomorphology and art history, media studies and medicine? And what can the Gestaltung disciplines of design and architecture contribute to this foundational research? This volume gathers together essays from the Cluster of Excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung, and, through its focus on the these three eponymous keywords, sheds light on the productivity of these diverse research approaches: from methodological transfers between the individual participating disciplines through to the interdisciplinary drafting of new structures of knowledge and research.

Abstract

»Roman Charity« investigates the iconography of the breastfeeding daughter from the perspective of queer sexuality and erotic maternity. The volume explores the popularity of a topic that appealed to early modern observers for its eroticizing shock value, its ironic take on the concept of Catholic »charity«, and its implied critique of patriarchal power structures. It analyses why early modern viewers found an incestuous, adult breastfeeding scene »good to think with« and aims at expanding and queering our notions of early modern sexuality. Jutta Gisela Sperling discusses the different visual contexts in which »Roman Charity« flourished and reconstructs contemporary horizons of expectation by reference to literary sources, medical practice, and legal culture.

Abstract

In place of the entanglement of person and work that so strongly marks the artistic work of Andy Warhol, and settles it in the usual Pop Art context, Mèlanie-Chantal Deiss locates it within the cultural context of America's post-war period. Viewed from this perspective, Warhol's work - which tends to be classified as superficial and ahistorical – exhibits unexpectedly serious engagements with concerns of the 1950s and 1960s. Throughout his image series, expressive, somewhat ambivalent narrative strands from America's post-war period unfurl, which transmit a concrete image, as a kind of written historical document. Warhol's visualized narration ultimately culminates in a cultural critique, which treats America not just as a stage of images, but also as site of contemplation of a cultural imaginary, in which art can critically and productively intervene.
