  • Die Darstellung der septem artes liberales und ihre by Gina Kacher

    By Gina Kacher

    Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Kunst - Ikonographie, rationale, Symbole, notice: 1,0, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Departement für Kunstwissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Enzyklopädische Bildprogramme in Italien, 13.-16. Jh., Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Kunst gibt nicht das Sichtbare wieder, sondern macht sichtbar. Ganz in diesem Sinn funktioniert auch das Darstellungsprinzip der Personifikation. Der Begriff bezeichnet in der Bildenden Kunst die Verkörperung abstrakter Sachverhalte in menschlicher Gestalt. Die Wiedererkennung durch den Betrachter basiert auf der Charakterisierung durch characteristic, Geschlecht und regulate, welche neben ihren identifizierenden auch inhaltliche Aspekte verfolgen: so bezeichnet die Weiblichkeit der Figur das grammatikalische Geschlecht des Wortes, während characteristic auf grundlegende Wesenheiten hindeuten. Damit vereint die ideale Personifikation eine Summe von Qualitäten in sich. Seit dem Mittelalter wurden Personifikationen in profanen und religiösen Bildprogrammen genutzt, um allgemeine Wertvorstellungen und Normen zu vermitteln, wobei dies oft nicht nur durch einzelne Figuren sondern ganze Themengruppen geschah. Diese entwickelten ab dem thirteen. Jahrhundert den regelrechten Anspruch, systematisch alle Bereiche des verfügbaren Wissens auf auffallend konstante Weise zu repräsentieren.
    Eine dieser Themengruppen stellen die septem artes liberales dar, welche im Folgenden anhand des Reliefzyklus am Florentiner Campanile näher erläutert werden sollen. Dabei soll besonders hervorgehoben werden, worauf sich ihr Wiederkennungswert gründet, welche Grundlagentexte dabei eine Rolle spielen und wie die Freien Künste innerhalb des programmatischen Rahmens wirken.

  • Interpassivität - Das Kunstwerk betrachtet sich selbst: Kann by Benjamin Müller

    By Benjamin Müller

    Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Kunst - Allgemeines, Kunsttheorie, word: 1,3, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Zu Beginn der neunziger Jahre galt Interaktivität als „State of the Art“, additionally das Maß aller Dinge. Sämtliche Bereiche, wie die Kunst, die Populärkultur und auch die kulturwissenschaftliche Theorie, wurden zu diesem Zeitpunkt von interaktiven Vorgängen bestimmt.
    Doch bereits Mitte der neunziger Jahre riefen diese Annahmen erste Kritiker, wie den slowenischen Philosophen, Kulturkritiker und nicht praktizierenden lacanianischen Psychoanalytiker, Slavoj Zizek auf den Plan. Zizek, der sich hauptsächlich mit der Weiterentwicklung und Anwendung, der psychoanalytischen Theorien nach Jacques Lacan, auf die Populärkultur und Kulturkritik befasste, analysierte im Rahmen seiner Arbeit das „Dosengelächter“ (canned laughter) von so genannten Sitcoms, additionally komödiantischen Serien. Er behauptete, dass dieses vorgegebene Lachen, welches dem Bild an scheinbar amüsanten Stellen unterlegt wurde, das Lachen der Zuschauer ersetze und diese so, ohne der Handlung zu folgen oder selbst lachen zu müssen, unterhalten würden. Zizek folgerte daraus, dass unsere Gefühle und Überzeugungen nichts Inneres sind, sondern eine außen angesiedelte, objektive Existenz führen können (vgl. Zizek, 1991, S. 50 ff.).
    Diese Theorie nach Zizek, greift Robert Pfaller, ein österreichischer Professor für Philosophie und Kulturwissenschaft, erneut auf und entwickelt sie in seinem Buch „Interpassivität. Studien über delegiertes Genießen“ (2000) weiter. Pfaller ist der Erste, der den heute viel diskutierten Begriff der „Interpassivität“ (vgl. Pfaller, 1996) in den Mund nimmt, obwohl an dieser Stelle zu erwähnen ist, dass die Begrifflichkeit zwar eine neue ist, die Annahmen allerdings sehr stark mit denen nach Zizek und Lacan korrelieren.
    Im Folgenden möchte ich den Begriff der Interpassivität näher beleuchten und ihn speziell auf seine Anwendbarkeit in der Kunst überprüfen. Hierzu werde ich zunächst versuchen, eine Begriffsdefinition vorzunehmen und Interpassivität zu erklären. Im nächsten Schritt werde ich mich dann speziell auf Interpassivität in der Kunst konzentrieren und versuchen der Aussage: „Das Kunstwerk betrachtet sich selbst“ auf den Grund zu gehen.
