Die visuelle Kultur der Habsburgischen Repräsentation

Die visuelle Kultur der Habsburgischen Repräsentation – ein Forschungsschwerpunkt
des Instituts für Kunst- und Musikhistorische Forschungen an der ÖAW Wien

Werner Telesko / Herbert Karner

Das Generalthema des Schwerpunktes ist die visuelle Kultur der habsburgischen Repräsentation und der Versuch, diese in ihren unterschiedlichsten Ausformungen zu entschlüsseln. Unter „Repräsentation“ verstehen wir die Vergegenwärtigung von Abwesendem durch unterschiedliche Medien (z.B. durch Wappen, Bilder, Skulpturen, Medaillen, Deckenmalereien), aber auch durch symbolische Interaktion bzw. statische oder performative Kommunikation (Architektur, Raumordnung, Einzug des Herrschers, Fest). Im Zentrum steht dabei die Frage, in welcher Weise habsburgische Repräsentationsstrategien in Kunst und Architektur in den Österreichischen Erblanden sowie in den böhmischen Ländern und Ungarn zum Ausdruck kommen.

Centre for Cross-Disciplinary Research into Cultural Phenomena in the Central European History: Image, Communication, Behaviour

by Michaela Šeferisová Loudová and Radka Nokkala Miltová, Seminar of Art History, Masaryk University in Brno

The main objective of the centre is a cross-disciplinary analysis and interpretation of mechanisms, which may explain the cultural-historical reality throughout its long duration from the Middle Ages up to the resent. The centre intends to develop a synergistic link between research teams in the cultural-historical field at universities in Brno and Olomouc, which have for some time now been prominent in their use of such approaches. In addition there is also the intention to draw on cooperation with the most important Czech Republic researchers as well as with leading experts abroad (Wroclaw, Vienna, Paris, Lausanne). In this sense the project endeavours to link up various methodological approaches with subjects in the field, which will be monitored within the particular modules: The theory and practice of cultural-historical disciplines; Image, cult, space; Imagination, image and text; Representation, places of memory. Outputs from the project will be a series of monographs, articles and a final, methodologically targeted volume, in which all the modules will be involved.
