ZiF Workshop

Rhythm, Time, Form - A Concept of Art Research around 1900 and its Temporal and Cultural Implications

Date: 26 - 28 September 2018
Convenors: Boris Roman Gibhardt (Bielefeld, GER)

The interdisciplinary workshop focused on the notion of rhythm. Around 1900 philosophers, artists and intellectuals strikingly often referred to the notion of rhythm in order to describe textual and visual phenomena of art and its experience. The workshop took up this debate on rhythm and tried to unfold its latent temporal and cultural implications. By reconstructing selected theoretical approaches that were discussed around 1900, and by critically referring to more recent positions, the workshop has demonstrated how the notion of rhythms can reasonably be integrated in a more general concept of time and temporality in the arts.
