Download e-book for kindle: René Magritte: "Baum und Mond" (1948) und "Der Zorn der by Sophia Reinhard

By Sophia Reinhard

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Kunst - Kunstgeschichte, word: 1,0, Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg (Institut für Neuere und Neueste Kunstgeschichte), Veranstaltung: Kunst nach 1945 – Positionen in der Präsentation zweier ganz unterschiedlicher Sammlungen, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Der belgische Künstler René Magritte, 1898 geboren und 1967 in Brüssel gestorben, gehört heute zu einem der bedeutendsten Vertreter des Surrealismus, einer Kunst des Fantastischen und Absurden, die das Traumhafte und Unbewusste zum Thema hat. (...)
Uwe M. Schneede schlägt in seiner Monographie über Magritte folgende Kategorien vor: 1. Die kriminalistischen Bilder, 2. Die Collage-Bilder, three. Die Sprach-Bilder, four. Die Bild-Bilder, five. Die Verwandlungs-Bilder und 6. Die Kombinations-Bilder. Seine Kompositionen weisen stets kalkulierte Bildräume auf, die jedoch die gewohnte Ordnung des Alltäglichen aufgegeben haben. Magritte durchkreuzt unsere selbstverständliche Wahrnehmung der Wirklichkeit und fordert auf den abbildhaften Charakter der Bilder kritisch zu betrachten. Alltägliche Erfahrungen und übliche Erwartungen sollen überwunden werden, um die Begrenztheit unserer Wahrnehmung der Wirklichkeit zu begreifen und Raum für neue Erkenntnisse schaffen zu können. Die Verwirrung, die uns bei der Beschäftigung mit Magrittes Bilder ergreift, evoziert der Maler oft nur mit geringfügigen Eingriffen in die Wirklichkeit(...) Kunst bietet dem belgischen Maler den nötigen Raum, um Darstellungs-und Wahrnehmungsprobleme aufzuzeigen, die sich ergeben, wenn guy erkennt, dass weder Sprache noch Bild Realität wiedergeben können, sondern lediglich stellvertretend begriffen werden dürfen. René Magritte betont Zeit seines Lebens ein Denker, und kein Künstler zu sein. Bilder sind ausschließlich Träger seiner Gedanken: ‚Malerei ist für mich lediglich ein Mittel. Dies erlaubt mir, einen Gedanken zu beschreiben, der einzig durch das gebildet wird, used to be die Welt an Sichtbarem bietet’ Seine Bilder sind weder illustrativ im Sinne einer Bebilderung einer Geschichte, noch allegorisch im Sinne der Visualisierung einer Idee zu verstehen. Sie befinden sich in einem ständigen Wechsel zwischen Gegenständlichkeit und Gedanklichkeit. (...) Subjektivität und Ausdruck des Inneren sind in Magrittes Werk nicht zu finden. Kalkuliert und selbst reflektierend stellt er den Betrachter vor ein challenge, denn „Magrittes Bilder sind keine Lösungen, sondern Auslöser, keine Aufhebungen von Problemen, sondern Problematisierungen“ . Sein gesamtes Werk widmet Magritte diesen geradezu philosophischen Fragestellungen. Dies soll im Folgenden an Hand zwei exemplarischer Werke, die sich heute im Besitz der Familie Sachs befinden, herausgearbeitet werden.
