Read e-book online Handbuch Rhetorik der Bildenden Künste (Handbücher Rhetorik) PDF

By Wolfgang Brassat

Vor allem in der Antike und der Frühen Neuzeit hat die Rhetorik maßgeblichen Einfluss auf die bildenden Künste ausgeübt. Als eine allgemeine Kommunikationslehre stellte sie ein höchst differenziertes Theoriemodell dar, dem die Kunsttheorie zahlreiche Begriffe und Theoreme entlehnte, nicht zuletzt um auf diesem Wege die künstlerische Arbeit als eine intellektuelle, den artes liberales ebenbürtige Tätigkeit auszweisen. Doch auch die künstlerische Praxis orientierte sich in vielfältiger Weise an der Rhetorik, z.B. an ihrer Lehre der Gattungen und Stilhöhen und an den Wirkungsfunktionen des docere, delectare und movere. Auf der Grundlage eines sprachanalogen Bildverständnisses wurden insbesondere die Malerei als Schwesterkunst der Dichtung und Rhetorik und ihre Werke als intentionale, der moralischen Unterweisung dienende Gebilde aufgefasst. Erst mit der Autonomie-Ästhetik der Aufklärung büßte die Rhetorik ihre Bedeutung als Referenzsystem der bildenden Künste ein, wobei sich weiterhin bestimmte Gattungen wie das Denkmal und die Karikatur rhetorischer Mittel bedienten.

Das vorliegende Handbuch behandelt diese Zusammenhänge zwischen Rhetorik und bildender Kunst erstmals auf systematische Weise von der Antike bis zur Gegenwart.

By Julia Kulewatz

Einem jeden dürfte klar sein, dass die Schlange selbst das Ursprünglichste aller Verführung verkörpert. Die Rhetorik ist vom selben Gesichtspunkt aus zu betrachten, sie ist die verführerische Rede, die Redekunst, suggestive Beeinflussung des Hörers, das In-Szene-Setzen von Sprache, die Kunst als Rhetor zu agieren und zu wirken. Bereits in der frühen Antike galt die Rhetorik, die Kunst von der freien und öffentlichen Rede, vor allem als die „Überredung“. Aristoteles unterteilte sie erstmalig in Pathos, Ethos und emblems, und erforschte die wahren Aufgaben der „Kunst zu Überreden“. Ziel der Rhetorik conflict nicht ausschließlich die Überzeugung des Zuhörers, ebenso sollte es Aufgabe der Redekunst sein, eine Identifikation zwischen Rhetor und Zuhörer zu bewerkstelligen, auf einer gemeinsamen Suche nach der Wahrheit, die nach antiker Weltanschauung nur auf einer kollektiven foundation möglich wurde. Rhetorik ermöglichte es dem gebildeten Menschen, mit Hilfe des Dialoges, von subjektiven Überzeugungen her, allgemeingültige Aussagen zu treffen, weshalb sie eng verknüpft ist mit der Philosophie, da beide Lehren nach der Wahrheit suchen. Der Mensch, nach Aristoteles ein triebhaftes und leicht zu beeinflussendes Wesen, welches sich keinesfalls auf die ihm gegebene Vernunft allein verlassen könne, auf der Suche nach Erkenntnis, bei dem ihm die Rhetorik den Weg ebnet.
