Kreativität und Mimesis – Das Bildschaffen in interkultureller Perspektive

Author(s): Wang, Zhuofei


As two concepts that are both distinct and intertwined, creativity and mimesis have their own history of development. In the visual arts, both refer primarily to the principles, methods, and procedures of image production. The production of images is neither entirely arbitrary nor entirely plannable, but has its own logic, which lies between work and reality, the inner world and the outer world as well as tradition and innovation. The relevant discourses are influenced by the respective cultural-historical frameworks. Due to this fact, it is of significance to consider the tension between creativity and mimesis in image practices from an intercultural perspective.
