Mehr und mehr werden die Fragen nach den medialen und medientechnischen Bedingungen von Literatur in den literaturwissenschaftlichen Curricula verankert – zumal im Zuge der Umstrukturierung der Studiengänge. Gleichwohl fehlt auf dem Buchmarkt bislang ein Handbuch, das Studierenden sowie Fachwissenschaftlern auf diesem nur schwer zu überblickenden Arbeitsfeld Orientierung bietet. Zwar liegen Standardwerke zur Medientheorie bzw. Mediengeschichte vor; es gibt jedoch einen steigenden Bedarf an einer Überblicksdarstellung, die diese Forschungsgebiete in ihrem Bezug auf Literatur erfasst. Das Handbuch schließt diese Lücke und informiert umfassend über die Medien der literarischen Texte einerseits sowie andererseits über die Medien der literarischen Kommunikation. Es bietet eine Bestandsaufnahme des aktuellen Forschungsstandes auf diesem Gebiet und stellt daher für angehende ebenso wie für erfahrene Literatur- und Buch-, aber auch Theater-, Film-, Medien- und Kulturwissenschaftler eine wichtige Informationsgrundlage bereit.

Long after painting, sculpture, photography, and film developed along with their materials - canvas and panel, marble and bronze, and celluloid film - a new generation of art has emerged in which digital, electronic, architectural, and performative materials have offered new forms for creative expression and experience. In much of this new art, the medium - no longer composed of passive materials - now embraces and challenges viewers to work as co-creators of aesthetic experience. Starting from the impossibility of understanding this new and complex art solely within the framework of contemporary art history and criticism, The Engagement Aesthetic offers new modes of critique for new media works of art, literature, and performance that operate in complex ways. Blending a range of methodologies from phenomenology, art history, linguistics, and statistical analysis, Ricardo explores how a new kinship between individual participation, electronic media, virtual and actual space, and mediated language results in a new aesthetic of mutual engagement.

How did the concept of the avant-garde come into existence? How did it impact on the performing arts? How did the avant-garde challenge the artistic establishment and avoid the pull of commercial theatre, gallery and concert-hall circuits? How did performance artists respond to new technological developments? Placing key figures and performances in their historical, social and aesthetic context, Günter Berghaus offers an accessible introduction to post-war avant-garde performance. Written in a clear, engaging style, and supported by text boxes and illustrations throughout, this volume explains the complex ideas behind avant-garde art and evocatively brings to life the work of some of its most influential performance artists. Covering hot topics such as multi-media and body art performances, this text is essential reading for students of theatre studies and performance.
