Hot Images – mimetic – iconic
Digest of a conference with slide projections in 1992 at the Nobel Library of the Swedish Academy in Stockhlom
Hot images shine up and disappear. They are part of the images which enter us regularly. They are hot for some time and cold afterwards. A hot image is obsessive.
Mimetic images seem innocent. They are narrative, they can consist of many elements. On the contrary, iconic images can be dangerous, being a concentrated amalgams of meanings, compressions of power.
Kurzfassung eines Dia-Vortrags, den ich 1992 in der Bibliothek Nobel der Schwedischen Akademie in Stockholm gehalten habe. Zum Englisch üben.
1. The Aachen Cathedral
2. Robert Indiana, Love Rising, 1968 + Erik Bulatov CCPC 1988
3. Andy Warhol Brillo and Campbell Boxes 1964 Sammlung Ludwig + Erik Bulatov Perestroika 1988 photographed in Moscow
The artists´engagement in publicity letter, words and images can simply prolong strategies of publicity itself – Bulatov simply celebrates the new era in his painting -, but it can also, in a strategy of analysis, describe meaning: in the fatal iconography of Warhol Brillo soap pads are cross instruments of purification and Tomato Soup stands for blood.Scan_20190619 (5)Scan_20190619 (3)
