Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2017 im Fachbereich Kunst - Bildhauerei, Skulptur, Plastik, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der wortwörtlich „gekippte Bogen“ impliziert die thematische Form eines gekrümmten Kurvenstücks, dessen materielle Ausformulierung dem Namen nach vermutlich schief und schräg im Raum zu verorten sein wird, wodurch gleichzeitig auf eine gewisse Instabilität der gewölbten Überspannung einer Raumöffnung hingewiesen wird. Der Titel des Werkes Tilted Arc ist somit ein textueller Verweis auf die Form des Objektes. Der materialisierte Zeichenträger ist wiederum eine freistehende Plastik aus korrodiertem Stahl und in einen platzeinnehmenden städtebaulichen Kontext eingelassen. Hervorzuheben ist, dass das haptische Element der rauen und durch Rost zersetzten Eisenoberfläche in Beziehung zum optischen Moment der Monumentalität gesetzt wird. Die Visualisierung des Werktitels ist sogar dermaßen raumgreifend, dass der Raum, der zur Rezeption des Gegenstandes nötig ist, durch das umliegende architektonische Gefüge nicht nur determiniert wird, sondern über diesen in einer raumzeitlichen Konzeption der Betrachtung hinaus reicht. Die Wahrnehmung des Objektes zusammen mit dem Objektraum entsteht in diesem Fall nicht nur durch die kontinuierliche Bewegung des Betrachters in und um den Raum herum, sondern durch dynamisch anmutende Verzahnungen einzelner Objekt- und Architektursegmente, die auf einen Wechsel der perspektivischen Ansichten der jeweiligen wahrnehmbaren Raumeinheiten angelegt sind.

Through the study of exemplary media works and practices - photography, film, video, performance, installations, web cams - scholars from various disciplines call attention to the unsettling of identification and the disablement of vision in contemporary aesthetics. To look at an image that prevents the stabilization of identification, identity and place; to perceive a representation that oscillates between visibility and invisibility; to relate to an image which entails a rebalancing of sight through the valorization of other senses; to be exposed, through surveillance devices, to the gaze of new figures of authority - the aesthetic experiences examined here concern a spectator whose perception lacks in certainty, identification, and opticality what it gains in fallibility, complexity, and interrelatedness. Precarious Visualities provides a new understanding of spectatorship as a relation that is at once corporeal and imaginary, and persistently prolific in its cultural, social, and political effects.

Geographical imagination and the authority of images collects three papers and an interview on the themes presented and discussed during the 2005 Hettner lectures. Cosgrove examines the roles that vision and imagination have played in shaping material and represented landscapes at scales ranging from the local and regional to the global and cosmic. The book presents substantive studies of cosmographic and global mapping, the picturesque tradition and suburban Los Angeles, and the use of aeTranspennine' England as a geographical art gallery. Embedded in these are theoretical and ethical reflections on the ways that we come to know the world, ourselves and each other through geographical engagements, especially when these are mediated through graphic images. The interview locates these themes within the context of Denis Cosgrove's development as a geographer and his response to debates within the discipline about the roles of imagination, culture and representation within geographies's humanities tradition.

This book links two fields of interest which are too seldom considered together: the production and critique of art in public space and social behaviour in the public realm. Whilst most writing about public art has focused on the aesthetic, cultural and political intentions and processes that shape its production, this edited collection examines a variety of public artworks from the perspective of their actual everyday use. Contributors are interested in the rich diversity of peoples’ engagements with public artworks across various spatial and temporal scales, encounters which do not limit themselves to the representational aspects of the art, and which are not necessarily as the artist, curator or sponsor intended. Case studies consider a broad range of public art, including commissioned and unofficial artworks, memorials, street art, street furniture, performance art, sound art and media installations.

Addressing the collection, representation and exhibition of architecture and the built environment, this book explores current practices, historical precedents, theoretical issues and future possibilities arising from the meeting of a curatorial ‘subject’ and an architectural ‘object’. Striking a balance between theoretical investigations and case studies, the chapters cover a broad methodological as well as thematic range. Examining the influential role of architectural exhibitions, the contributors also look at curatorship as an emerging attitude towards the investigation and interpretation of the city. International in scope, this collection investigates curation, architecture and the city across the world, opening up new possibilities for exploring the urban fabric.

Narratives of Art Practice and Mental Wellbeing draws on extensive research carried out with mental health service users who are also practicing artists. Using narrative data gained through hours of reflective conversation, it explores not whether art can contribute to positive wellbeing and improved mental health - as this is now established ground - but rather how art works, and the role art making can play in people’s lives as they encounter crises, relapse, recovery or ‘beyonding’. The book maps the delicate ways in which finding a means to tell our story sometimes is the creative project we seek, and offers a reminder of how intrinsically linked our life trajectories are with creative opportunities. It describes the wide range of artistic activity occurring in health and community settings and the meanings of these practices to people with histories of mental turbulence. Drawing on psychoanalytic theory, the book explore the stories and various forms of visual arts practices spoken of, and considers the art making processes, the creative moments and the objects which in some cases have changed people’s lives. The seven chapters of the book offer a blend of personal testimony, theory, debate, critique and celebration, and examine key topics of deliberation within the fields of art therapy, arts in health, community arts practice, participatory arts, and widening participation within arts education. It will be valuable reading for researchers, students, artists and practitioners in these fields.

La mobilité – la capacité à se déplacer ou à être déplacé – est un élément si omniprésent dans la vie moderne qu’elle est tenue pour acquise, presque imperceptible en raison de sa constante présence. Dans Mobilités culturelles – Cultural Mobilities, des chercheurs du Canada et du Brésil, écrivant en anglais et en français, s’interrogent sur l’impact et l’influence qu’a la mobilité sur les dynamiques culturelles au sein de leurs deux pays et entre eux. Explorant le mouvement – des gens, des idées et des créations culturelles – et les processus qui affectent ce mouvement, ils apportent de nouvelles perspectives sur la manière dont la mobilité structure les conditions culturelles contemporaines. Intrinsèquement interdisciplinaire, le volume s’appuie sur des contributions provenant entre autres des domaines de la géographie urbaine, des arts visuels, du cinéma, de la littérature, de la danse et du journalisme, soulignant la mobilité comme un domaine important de la recherche universitaire. Aussi intrinsèquement interculturel, il utilise une approche comparative Sud–Nord qui révèle les points communs et les différences entre les contextes canadien et brésilien. Mobilités culturelles – Cultural Mobilities propose une méthode pour l’étude de la mobilité en tant que force culturelle dans la société contemporaine. Mobility – the ability to move or be moved – is such a ubiquitous element of modern life that it is taken for granted, almost unnoticeable because of its constant presence. In Mobilités culturelles – Cultural Mobilities, scholars from Canada and Brazil, writing in both English and French, consider the impact and influence of mobility on cultural dynamics within and between their countries. Exploring movement – of people, ideas and cultural creations – and the processes that affect this movement, they provide new insights into how mobility shapes contemporary cultural conditions. Intrinsically interdisciplinary, the volume includes contributions from the fields of urban geography, visual arts, film, literature, dance and journalism, among others, highlighting mobility as an important area of scholarly enquiry. Also intrinsically intercultural, it employs a South–North comparative approach that reveals the intersections and differences between the Canadian and Brazilian contexts. Mobilités culturelles – Cultural Mobilities charts a path for the study of mobility as a cultural force in contemporary society.

As a city that seems to float between Europe and Asia, removed by a lagoon from the tempos of terra firma, Venice has long seduced the Western imagination. Since the 1797 fall of the Venetian Republic, fantasies about the sinking city have engendered an elaborate series of romantic clichés, provoking conflicting responses: some modern artists and intellectuals embrace the resistance to modernity manifest in Venice's labyrinthine premodern form and temporality, whereas others aspire to modernize by "killing the moonlight" of Venice, in the Futurists' notorious phrase. Spanning the history of literature, art, and architecture—from John Ruskin, Henry James, and Ezra Pound to Manfredo Tafuri, Italo Calvino, Jeanette Winterson, and Robert Coover—Killing the Moonlight tracks the pressures that modernity has placed on the legacy of romantic Venice, and the distinctive strains of aesthetic invention that resulted from the clash. In Venetian incarnations of modernism, the anachronistic urban fabric and vestigial sentiment that both the nation-state of Italy and the historical avant-garde would cast off become incompletely assimilated parts of the new. Killing the Moonlight brings Venice into the geography of modernity as a living city rather than a metaphor for death, and presents the archipelago as a crucible for those seeking to define and transgress the conceptual limits of modernism. In strategic detours from the capitals of modernity, the book redrafts the confines of modernist culture in both geographical and historical terms.

To read accounts of late medieval banquets is to enter a fantastical world where live lions guard nude statues, gilded stags burst into song, and musicians play from within pies. We can almost hear the clock sound from within a glass castle, taste the fire-breathing roast boar, and smell the rose water cascading in a miniature fountain. Such vivid works of art and performance required collaboration among artists in many fields, as well as the participation of the audience. A Feast for the Eyes is the first book-length study of the court banquets of northwestern Europe in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Christina Normore draws on an array of artworks, archival documents, chroniclers’ accounts, and cookbooks to re-create these events and reassess the late medieval visual culture in which banquets were staged. Feast participants, she shows, developed sophisticated ways of appreciating artistic skill and attending to their own processes of perception, thereby forging a court culture that delighted in the exercise of fine aesthetic judgment. Challenging modern assumptions about the nature of artistic production and reception, A Feast for the Eyes yields fresh insight into the long history of multimedia work and the complex relationships between spectacle and spectators.

Post 9-11, post Iraqi invasion, post (we wish) the War on Terrorism, there is a great deal of interest in safety in the public domain, both in the political realm and among the general public. Individuals and society as a whole are increasingly concerned with protection and security for themselves and their material possessions. These newfound worries have repercussions for the layout, design and management of public and semi-public places, imposing new demands on artists, designers, commissioners and policy makers. "Open 6" examines the root causes of the public desire for safety. The authors consider theoretical and practical scenarios, proposals and visions from the realms of art, architecture, philosophy, and politics, in an attempt to lay bare something of the modern-day safety paradigm. Alternatively, the authors argue the need for new models. The contributors also provide insight into the current state of the modern-day practicalities of the aesthetics and ethics of safety in essays which directly consider real places or (art) projects.
