Hot Images – mimetic – iconic 5
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 + Erik Bulatov Perestroika 1988
4. Tom Wesselmann Great American Nude 54 1964 + Ivan Tchuikov The great bathing nude 1969
5. Malcolm Morley Race track 1972 + Ilya Kabakov Controlled! 1983 both Ludwig Collection
Linked to the political message of Indiana´s painting Morley´s work was understood as a protest against South African Apartheid. The ambiguous attitude of the pop artist did no more than contain this possibility of interpretation. Kabakov took over the strategy of tautology when he painted the colour reproduction of a Stalinist painting of 1937 depicting the ceremony of rehabilitation which was offered to members of the communist party after thorough investigations into their lives.Scan_20190619Scan_20190619 (4)
