Paragone 1900. Studien zum Futurismus

  • DE

The twentieth century can be defined as a new century of insecurity and uncertainty. Within media studies, people often speak about a crisis of gestures and movement in pictures and texts at the beginning of the 20th century, which accompanies the development of the new media. This refers to a new paragone, a comparison of the old arts and the new media, as can be observed in the First Italian Futurism (1909–1918). The new media photography and film compete with the much older arts painting and sculpture. In this intermedial and comparative study, the author analyzes the new technical and medial developments as a change in perceptual patterns in Italian Futurism and in the artistic developments which followed.
