Knapp, Gottfried
Albrecht Ade's 'photages', created with special light techniques, have nothing in common with the 'photocollages' or 'photomontages' of the 20th century. When artists as different as El Lissitzky, John Heartfield, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Raoul Hausmann or Hannah Hoch constructed futuristically bold, surreal or satirical images from photographic materials as a response to quotations from reality cut out and then stuck into Cubist 'papiers colles' by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, they worked mainly with someone else's material, with trouvailles. In contrast, Ade uses only his own material for his combination images, and his method for mounting images, for 'editing them into each other', does not need of scissors and paste either. He cultivates the usually involuntary effect of double exposure, a hazard from the days of analogue photography. He controls the chances of pictorial superimposition and confusion, artfully and purposefully arranging his own, deliberately positioned images among and on top of each other, using a technically elaborate matching and omission process. Ade, as well as teaching at the Stuttgart Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, has intensively promoted cinematic animation techniques in his years as director of the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film, and since 1990, as founder-director of the Filmakademie in Ludwigsburg, has allowed animated film and camera arts to develop in the greatest possible breadth, in fact has helped to win the Ludwigsburg model the highest artistic respect in the film world. This all suggests how inventively and ingeniously his creative output mingles artistically creative and elaborately technical ideas and fascinations. Photography as a creative method for fine art - something the pioneers of photography dreamed of in the 19th century - becomes reality in Albrecht Ade's 'photages'. The text is in English and German. 97pp.

Edited By Ostrem, Eyolf Etc.
The concepts of genre and ritual are central for the overall occupation with the relationship between the History of the Arts and the History of Christianity in Western Culture. In particular, these two concepts have important bearings for the research carried out at the Centre for the Study of the Cultural Heritage of Medieval Rituals which has been established at the Faculty of Theology at the University of Copenhagen through funding from the Danish National Research Foundation. The first of the annual conferences of the Centre was dedicated to the question of ritual and genre. The present volume was planned on the basis of this conference: a collection of 15 essays with a wide range of topics both in terms of chronology and subject matter. The individual essays have been written partly by scholars at the Centre, partly by colleagues from universities in Denmark, Norway , Sweden, Germany and the USA with which the Centre collaborates. The aims has been to publish a volume which in a facetted way sheds light on the complex relationship between the two broad and difficult terms, genre and ritual, within the cultural history of Europe.336pp.
