  • Klang - Ton - Musikby Wolf Gerhard Schmidt; Jean-Francois Candoni; Stéphane Pesnel

    Klänge, Töne und Musikwerke haben - nicht zuletzt seit Beginn der Moderne - (national-)kulturell identitätsstiftend gewirkt und tun dies in verschiedenen Kontexten noch heute. Welche medienspezifischen und soziokulturellen Voraussetzungen müssen erfüllt sein, damit Schallwellen eine kollektivbildende Wirkung entfalten können? Welche Parameter (Klang,... more...

    The ubiquity of the avant-garde may lead us to wonder what remains of the original project. Despite its alleged failure or cooptation, the avant-garde and avant-garde theories helped to decenter, subvert, and transform the entire field of literature and aesthetics. With its projects of turning non-art into art and reconciling art and life,... more...
