Abstract

In his controversial poem “I Sing the Body Electric”, Walt Whitman glorified the human body in all its forms. The world according to Whitman is physical and sensual. Bodies are our fundamental way of being – being in the here and now, being in time and space. Bodies we have and bodies we are are as much sensed, felt, experienced, seen, or heard as they are material objects.2 As bodies, we are in space, and through our bodies, their processes, their practices, their skills, we leave traces in space and time and extend ourselves in space. Bodies that extend and reach out and communicate through voice, as well as how voice materialises the immaterial, was the topic of a colloquium, “I Sing the Body Electric”, held at the University of Hull, United Kingdom, in 2014, which in turn inspired the following special issue of the Journal for Religion, Film and Media (JRFM). Following on from the colloquium’s inspiration, this JRFM issue is dedicated to the interrelation between religion, body, technology, and voice and its analysis from an interdisciplinary perspective using approaches from musicology, philosophy, and religious studies.

Abstract

This paper compares the personification of Zion in Isaiah 51:1–52:6 as a mother and daughter with Tracy Chapman's 1995 song "The rape of the world" where the earth is portrayed as mother. I will explore the use of rape imagery and how both pieces portray the negative effects of human activity on the earth, whether by commercial activity or war. The environmental impact of the desolation of the earth during the Babylonian exile depicted in Isaiah and its portrayal via gendered images is viewed through the lens of ecofeminist criticism. The earth itself has a voice in both Chapman’s and Isaiah’s words.

Abstract

Popular music’s use of visual media makes its listeners also its viewers. From concert posters, tickets stubs and stage design to music videos, CD covers and clothes, material visual products are utilized by bands and fans alike to emphasize their sound, represent ideas or lyrics, self-stylize, sell the product and generate recognition for their in-group. As with other forms of popular culture, there is intensive exchanges between the fields of religion and heavy metal. Religion can appear within popular culture in the form of explicit or implicit religious themes, content, images, symbols or language; popular culture can appear in religion as the appropriation of different elements by a religion; popular culture can itself be analysed as religion, usually using a very broad functionalist definition of religion; and finally, popular culture and religion can be in dialogue. Focusing on the incorporation of religious iconography and imagery in hevay metals visual language opens questioning of the particular form of bricolage and the motivations of selection concerning individual visual elements. Which factors determine this exchange? How does bricolage help to understand the recycling and restructuring of motifs? And how does this specifically concern religious images?

Abstract

The article discusses the question “What makes Popular Christian Music ‘popular’?” by applying different (competing) concepts of the term “popular” so as to showcase by which criteria Popular Christian Music (labelled as Contemporary Christian Music by the US music industry) can be described as “popular”. Thereby, the article compares both Anglo-American and German-language Christian songs by means of close reading using the examples of the German band Koenige & Priester [Kings & Priests] and US singer Lauren Daigle. Through the presented exemplary analyses, I argue that Christian music uses strategies of popularization comparable to secular popular music. The difference to secular music comes from the fact that the Christian message is a central genre marker of Popular Christian Music, leading me to suggest that the popularity (in the sense of reaching a large audience apart from religious/evangelistic circles) essentially depends on the polysemic properties of the lyrics.

Abstract

Die Kunstsammlung der Universität Göttingen ist vor allem für ihren Bestand an Niederländischer Kunst des 17. Jahrhunderts bekannt. Dass sie darüber hinaus auch eine Kollektion von Gemälden des 19. Jahrhunderts umfasst, die einige wirkliche Schätze enthält, gleicht einer Neuentdeckung. Diese Kollektion wird hier erstmals in einem eigenen Bestandskatalog vorgestellt. Obwohl es sich um eine eher kleine Sammlung handelt, erweist sich diese doch als erstaunlich repräsentativ, um das Kunstverständnis des 19. Jahrhunderts mit seinen wechselnden Prämissen sowie kunsttheoretischen und künstlerischen Auseinandersetzungen an konkreten Kunstwerken aufzuzeigen. Eine zentrale Rolle spielt dabei die Gattungstheorie: Die seit der Frühen Neuzeit vertretene Ausdifferenzierung der Malerei in profane und religiöse Historie, Genre, Landschaft, Stillleben, Tierstück und Porträt wurde über das gesamte 19. Jahrhundert hinweg kontrovers diskutiert, blieb aber als wertsetzendes System lange präsent. Der vorliegende, von Dozenten und Studierenden des Kunstgeschichtlichen Seminars der Universität Göttingen gemeinsam erarbeitete Bestandskatalog nutzt die Gattungstheorie als „roten Faden“, um eine historische Perspektive auf den Bestand der Gemälde des 19. Jahrhunderts in der Göttinger Universitätskunstsammlung anzubieten.

Abstract

The thematic section of this issue of JRFM deals with apocalyptic imaginings in literature and film. The articles address issues such as authority, authenticity, belief, imagining social futures, and art as social laboratory. Throughout, the authors employ the lens of “the apocalyptic” to demonstrate how media can address broader socio-political and psychological issues. They can serve as a kind of social barometer to help us identify contemporary angst, anxieties, hopes, and dreams. Doing so, the authors highlight that “the apocalyptic” serves as useful analytical tool that allows us to learn something about society that might otherwise remain hidden. As such, they go back to the Greek origins of the word and show that “apocalyptic work” is the work of revealing and unveiling – both for artists and creators of media texts and for academics as scholars of contemporary culture.

Abstract

Animation und Comic weisen in ihren Ästhetiken offenkundige Parallelen auf, denen jedoch bislang in der jeweils einschlägigen Forschung kaum angemessene Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet wurde. Die im vorliegenden Band versammelten Beiträge fragen vor diesem Hintergrund aus einer dezidiert interdisziplinären Perspektive nach der spezifischen Qualität, Materialität und Ästhetik von Animation und Comic.

Abstract

Mit der Konvergenz von Raum, Medien und Design verändern sich nicht nur Designpraktiken radikal, sondern auch die Oberflächen, die es zu gestalten gilt: Digitale Karten ermöglichen eine Schnittstelle zur physischen Welt und erlauben neuartige Formen von Navigation und räumlicher Erfahrung. Gleichzeitig werfen Internetunternehmen als Kartografen Diskussionen über Ungleichheiten und hegemoniale Ansprüche auf. Dieses Buch führt in dieses Feld ein, skizziert wichtige Einflüsse, Theorien und Herangehensweisen und erklärt anhand aktueller Beispiele, wie kartenbasierte Interfaces funktionieren können. Die so entwickelten Grundlagen bieten aber auch Inspiration für einen kritischen und experimentellen Zugang, der für DesignerIinnen, PraktikerIinnen und für ein designinteressiertes Publikum von Belang ist.
