Miracles of Mediation

Fricke, Beate (22 April 2020). Miracles of Mediation (Unpublished). In: Silsila: Center for Material Histories. NYU New York. 22. April 2020.

A late medieval panel painting of an Annunciation scene in a converted mosque is infused with artistic reflections about how to stage a divine moment and present it to the viewer. Played with are the relationships between constructed painterly narrative and performed liturgical drama, between imagination and experience, between inspiration and conception. This lecture will explore how such connections are expressed in the painting through the shifting relationships between caused miracle (incarnation/semination), mediated miracle (communion), and saintly interlocutors.
