Abstract

David Bowie’s 2015 Blackstar has been understood by critics and fans alike to have a certain valedictory status. For them, perhaps for us, it is a 39-minute and 13-second farewell. A long goodbye. My angle is different. By situating the Bowie/Renck collaboration on “Lazarus” in the context of a meditation on the question once posed by Georg Stanitzek, “Was ist Kommunikation?” I consider the CD and the video as experiments in re-configuration. More specifically, by thinking about the distinctly cinematic iteration of the question of communication (citing here Captain’s “what we have here is … failure to communicate” from Cool Hand Luke) I propose that mediated communication embodies the Ich/Es modality of dialogue disparaged by Martin Buber. What this invites us to consider is whether “Lazarus” in particular isn’t the generation of an audiovisual tombeau from which or out of which communication strains are to be heard. Is it “saying” farewell? Is it “saying” anything? By drawing on Jacques Derrida’s appropriation of the crypt in the work of Abraham and Torok, I propose that “Lazarus” manages (and the feat is neither small nor insignificant) to communicate nothing. In effect, “Lazarus” is the very sound, not of a failure to communicate, but of a “speaking” emptied of what protects it from mediation. Here, Bowie’s gnomic persona assumes a political valence not typically ascribed to it.

Abstract

Si les prouesses des artes memoriae sont celles d’une mémoire artificielle, c’est la memoria, au sens limité d’évocation de faits singuliers ou d’événements, dans la mesure où elle importe à la constitution de la subjectivité, qui a été au centre des travaux de cette journée d’étude. La memoria est un phénomène aussi bien individuel que social. L’écriture accomplit un geste mémorial, lorsque son auteur déclare qu’il favorise ou suscite la mémoire des autres passés ou présents, renommés, fameux, dont il transmet l’histoire, les histoires. En même temps et surtout, l’auteur élabore au présent sa fama tout au long de son œuvre. Entre le livre mémorial et la manière d’agir il y a une constante tension. L’entrelacement de fama, memoria et historia a des implications d’ordre politique, idéologique, subjectif. Les articles réunis ici visent à examiner, sans prétendre à l’exhaustivité, comment des individus, dans les circonstances les plus différentes, sont amenés à construire leur mémoire et leur identité en racontant l’histoire des autres, qu’il s’agisse de pays, de groupes sociaux, d’hommes et de femmes, en faisant œuvre de création historique, littéraire ou artistique. Renommés en leur temps, ces individus ont parfois été oubliés. Car il y a une vulnérabilité fondamentale de la mémoire, entre l’absence de la chose souvenue et sa présence sur le mode de la représentation.
