Description

The course is dedicated to the intersection of scientific, literary and artistic explanatory models and forms of representation from the 1920s to the present day.

In the text "Gestaltungsfragen der Lyrik" (1926), the literary scholar Marianne Thalmann (1888-1975), who was also an early student of the Angewandte, devotes herself to the visualisation of volumes of poetry (by Stefan George, Rainer Maria Rilke, Georg Trakl, among others). With recourse to Paul Klee's line theory and explanatory models of literary psychology, she illustrates and abstracts poetic regularities using graphic models.

Based on this text, we will familiarise ourselves in the seminar with contemporary models of Gestalt theory and psychology, the blending of scientific and artistic forms of knowledge and the pictoriality of literature. At the same time, we will also introduce current (student) approaches to linguistic-artistic writing in which the interplay of form and content or content and form is essential.

In their presentation, students can address the topic of the pictorial nature of literature both theoretically and historically as well as with their own literary texts.
