Gedächtnisparagone - intermediale Konstellationen

Front Cover
V & R unipress, 2010 - Social Science - 312 pages
For the last two decades, the research of Memory Cultures intensively focused on how the media participates in the representation of the past. When this specific potentiality gets involved in a competition of media, a Paragone of Memory arises, which points out the memorial mechanisms and capacities of media and puts them under consideration. The model for that prolific competitive relation is the Paragone, the competition of the Arts from Leonardo da Vinci to Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, which discusses also the function of memory of text, image and sound. The articles in this book examine that controversial intermedial constellation from antique representations of dreams, medieval manuals of devotion, baroque opera and medals around 1800 to contemporary media art. German text.
