The seminar is devoted to various concepts of alterity that have shaped Western/European modernity. The focus is on figures of the Other in relation to the control of reason and technology.Topoi of madness, the primitive, the feminine, nature and the colonial other will be discussed. The focus will be on the comparison and critique of these topoi and the deconstruction of the underlying binarity of identity and alterity.Topoi of madness, the primitive, the feminine, nature and the colonial other will be discussed. This will involve the analysis, comparison and critique of these topoi and the deconstruction of the underlying binarity of identity and alterity. Using heterogeneous material, the project will examine in particular whether and to what extent visual art - as has often been assumed - has a particular affinity or receptivity to the variable manifestations or instances of the Other.
