Get Ordnungsmuster im Werk von Kurt Schwitters: Zwischen PDF

By Julia Nantke

Die literarische Produktion des Avantgarde-Künstlers Kurt Schwitters wurde in der Forschung bisher maßgeblich unter der Prämisse der Subversion von Ordnung betrachtet. Die Autorin zeigt hingegen, ausgehend von einer breit angelegten semiotischen Untersuchung der Kunst von Schwitters, wie die Transgression bestehender Ordnungskategorien wie Autorschaft, Gattung und Kunstform bei Schwitters mit der Etablierung alternativer Muster jenseits disziplinärer Grenzen einhergeht. Die Studie beschreibt, wie literarische und bildkünstlerische Werke gleichermaßen durch die herausgearbeiteten Ordnungsmuster strukturiert sind. Ebenso erweisen sich auf diese Weise Hybridgegenstände an der Grenze von Kunst und Alltagsgebrauch eindeutig (auch) dem künstlerischen Werk zugehörig.
Dieser Ansatz ermöglicht eine transdisziplinäre und hochaktuelle Neuperspektivierung von Schwitters’ gesamter Kunst: Seine Texte erscheinen als Elemente eines kunstformenübergreifenden Spielraums, in dem der Einfluss medialer Formate und diskursiver Strukturen auf die Wahrnehmung von ‚Realität‘ für den Rezipienten/die Rezipientin zum zentralen, immer wieder neu erfahrbaren Gegenstand wird.
