Unpaid Annotation
In der Kunst der letzten Jahre ist die Menschendarstellung in unterschiedlichster Form erneut stark ins Blickfeld ger ckt. Das herkvmmliche Menschenbild in der Kunst wurde von Vorgaben geprdgt, die sich im Wesentlichen in der Fr hrenaissance entwickelt haben. Deren Auflvsung beschdftigte die Kunst des letzten Jahrhunderts. Es waren jeweils neue Medien wie Fotografie, Film, Video und elektronische Bildbearbeitung, die die Stimmigkeit tradierter Bildbegriffe in Frage stellten mit durchaus auch widerspr chlichen Ergebnissen. Die Figur und das Portrdt schienen zum Beispiel der Vergangenheit anzugehvren. Viele und vielfdltige Ansdtze in der j ngeren Kunst widersprechen dem allerdings und legen einen weiteren Blick auf den Menschen nahe, auf seine Produzierbarkeit wie auf seine Reproduzierbarkeit. Dieses Buch prdsentiert einige bedeutende Positionen, an denen der aktuelle Stand solcher Auseinandersetzungen deutlich wird.
Main Description
Explores the current state of human depiction in art and new media.
Main Description
The representation of man has once again become the focus of recent art. Conventional depictions were set by precepts handed down from the early Renaissance, while art of the last century was concerned with annulling these same precepts. Now, new media such as photography, film, video, and electronic image processing challenge the accuracy of traditional concepts of the image of man, often with quite contradictory results. The figure and the portrait, for example, once seemed a thing of the past; now, however, various approaches in recent art suggest a wider view of man, his producibility and his reproducibility. This book presents a number of important opinions in order to illustrate the current state of human depiction in art.
