Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Title: Theatrum mundi. Forms of staging and reflection of the theatre metaphor
Statements that in some way regard the world as theatre or social life as a play can be identified as constants in cultural history. However, the terms they operate with, the views they point to and the forms of visualisation and staging they result in are historically specific in each case.
The lecture examines forms of staging and reflection of theatre metaphors. As a lecture on theatre historiography, it focuses on the 17th century, which developed a particular affinity for acting and thinking within the framework of theatrum mundi models.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written examination at the end of the semester, three further examination dates follow at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of the following summer semester 2022.
