Die Morphologie des Bildes
Eine kunsthistorische Methode der Kunstkommunikation
The study approaches art by focusing on visual perception and trying to answer the central question of how communication is possible through art, i.e. through perception. Taking sacred interiors of modern age as an example, the relationship between observer and image is problematized in order to identify the cornerstones of an art historical method based on a difference-theoretical concept of art (Luhmann, Spencer-Brown), with which the reception of images based on perception can be examined and interpreted with regard to art communication. Such a method is called Morphology of the Image.
