Shifting Horizons

Fricke, Beate (28 August 2019). Shifting Horizons (Unpublished). In: Horizonte - Eine linie und ihre Verschiebungen in Kunst, Literatur und Geschichte. Basel. 28. - 31. August 2019.

This lecture on horizons will examine the historical meanings and functions of horizons in visual and intellectual cultures from antiquity to the renaissance. Taking a closer look at horizons and their shifts allows us to understand how people have and continue to apprehend the relationship between the visible world and the invisible dimension of the cosmos. How do cultures define what lies beyond the horizon? In a globally networked world, what relevance does the changing horizon have? One of the fundamental questions we will have to ask is whether modern understandings of representation can be understood as a result of the dynamic that transpires at the borderline of the horizon? Does the act of setting into motion and transgressing create cultural stabilities?
