Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The invention of photography was declared early and frequently the death of painting. And certainly anti-mimetic developments in painting in the 19th and 20th centuries can be understood as a reaction to the unsurpassable 'truthfulness' of the pictures drawn by the 'pencil of nature' (H. F. Talbot, 1844) and to the soon mass distribution of photo-based pictures. On the other hand, painting of the 19th and 20th centuries has often resorted to photography as a technical aid and as a reference object in its own right. The case study deals with the complex relationship between painting and photography, starting from technical aspects (the light image of photography in relation to the perspective projection of the Renaissance) and semiotic implications (photography as an 'icon', which, in Ch. S. Peirce's terminology, is also an index). We briefly discuss the development of photo-based visual media and the late recognition of photography as an 'art'. The historical focus is on interferences of painting and photography in artworks since the 1960s.
Aim: Introduction to art historical methods and their semiotic foundations; introduction to perspective theory; exercise in work analysis.
Methods: Close readings of texts and artworks
