Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Performance art, land art, light sculpture, digital poetry, hypertext fiction - there are artefacts which transcend common generic boundaries and merge various media to create something entirely new. This course explores the phenomenon of intermediality, its theoretical make-up, its classic, conventionalised forms and some of its more recent, experimental examples.

Assessment and permitted materials

Oral report (mini-conference), short paper.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

This course aims at a) discussing medial hybridity as a major aesthetic phenomenon b) teaching a topic-related analytical toolkit c) enabling students to apply their knowledge and skills in their own projects d) alerting students to related issues such as defamiliarisation, intertextuality, anti-illusionism, metareferentiality and postmodernist aesthetics and philosophy.

Examination topics

Lecture, group work, oral report, short paper.

Reading list

We will be dealing with the conventionalised (opera, film music, ekphrasis, picture books, manga, film adaptation) as well as with the experimental and revolutionary (performance art, digital poetry, fluxus, happening, sound sculpture, net music, John Cage's version of Finnegans Wake, Olga Neuwirth's rewriting of David Lynch's Lost Highway, Christoph Schlingensief's and Steve Reich's hybrid oeuvre). Powerpoint presentations and a reader will be provided. Relevant literature will be made available via a reserved shelves collection in the departmental library.
