3. Course contents *

This course offers a close reading of seminal texts on the relationship between word and image. We study the theoretical canon and thus provide a sound basis for the alternative history of the eye performed in Criticism of Modernity in Theatre and Film. We seek a direct confrontation with innovative theoretical ideas that have determined our thinking about art in the 20th century and beyond. Also of interest is the specific (literary) idiom of the respective writers. The teaching format is the working seminar: after a brief introduction on the historical context and conditions of the text we have an open discussion of the arguments.
