Christian Nille, Von der Alltagsanschauung zur kunsthistorischen Raum-Kritik. Versuche am Beispiel der Vorhoffassade des Georg Forster-Gebäudes der Mainzer Universität

Bild als Ereignis, Vol. 1

The Georg Forster-Building is situated on the campus of Mainz University. Most prominent is its glass façade. The present text analyzes systematically the architectural design and its power to fascinate thus contributing to current debate and critique of visual art.
This leads to a major issue: Which position should art history take between the common perception of images and the scientific analysis of images and their perception? In the course of this paper an answer will be provided which will draw on art history, philosophy of science and current sociology of space in order to formulate an art historical critique of space.

Ian Verstegen, Federico Barocci and the Science of Drawing in Early Modern ltaly

Federico Barocci has firmly entered the canon of late Renaissance and early Baroque art history. Yet even after monographs and exhibitions, his working procedure still resists complete understanding. The following book is a structural examination of the working practice of Federico Barocci, shedding light on each of the kinds of drawings he produced in the execution of a typical painting. The book seeks out the logic of Barocci’s practices, which may seem idealized but is nonetheless quite real. In the end, this book provides a master key for understanding the function and constitution of Barocci's remarkable graphic production.

Marlen Schneider, Ulrike Kern (Hrsg.), Imitatio – Aemulatio – Superatio: Bildpolitiken in transkultureller Perspektive. Thomas Kirchner zum 65. Geburtstag

Aemulative Handlungen wirken sich oft progressiv aus, sei es durch innovative Adaption, Modulation oder Perfektion von bereits Vorhandenem, aber auch durch ironische Brechung mit traditionellen Sehgewohnheiten. Diese Prozesse, durch die kulturelle, soziale und mediale Gegebenheiten sowohl in der Produktion als auch in der Rezeption von Kunst neu verhandelt werden, bilden den thematischen Schwerpunkt des Bandes. Vorgestellt wird eine epochen- und kulturraumübergreifende Perspektive auf den fortwährenden Bedeutungswandel visueller Zeichen und künstlerischer Verfahren. Die in den Fallstudien untersuchte Konfrontation verschiedener historischer, kultureller und ästhetischer Kontexte vermag es, den Kunstdiskurs zu dynamisieren, neue Sichtweisen zu eröffnen, und die anhaltende gesellschaftliche Brisanz von aktueller Kunst und Werken vergangener Epochen deutlich zu machen.
Die Thomas Kirchner gewidmete Festschrift wird von Ulrike Kern und Marlen Schneider herausgegeben.

Blanca Gutiérrez Galindo , “En la República Democrática Alemana la pintura es más alemana”

This volume presents three articles that reflect on the reception of the art legacy of the GDR in the years following the Reunification of Germany. The aim is to offer Spanish speaking readers a wider perspective of the art scene in Germany that is no longer restricted to the art of the former West Germany. The first article deals with the most important exhibitions of painting of the GDR. The second one examines the case of the painter Bernhard Heisig, whose numerous paintings have been interpreted by West German historians as an Aufarbeitung der Vergangenheit. The third one gives an overview of the art scene in the 1940s in the GDR.

Hubertus Kohle is an art historian and professor who has made a name for himself in Germany especially with his research on the art of the European Enlightenment and the nineteenth century. He opened up his discipline early on to digital processes and concepts and has been committed to electronic publishing in Open Access for years. As one of the two directors of the renowned DFG Priority Programme "The Digital Image", he is currently also working on a multidisciplinary approach to the subject of the digital. On the occasion of his 60th birthday, he was honoured by numerous friends and academic companions with this commemorative publication, the content of which ties in with the focal points of his work - from the analogue beginnings dedicated to the art of the Age of Enlightenment to the current field of "digital art history". This commemorative volume is understood as an experimental online publication that is presented first to the birthday celebrant in a purely virtual version.
