    Aesthetic Unity and the Politics of Sameness in Clemens Brentano's Theoretical Writings2015In: Afterlives of Romantic Intermediality: The Intersection of Visual, Aural, and Verbal Frontiers / [ed] Leena Eilittä, Catherine Riccio-Berry, Lanham: Lexington Books, 2015, p. 95-112Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1811 and 1812 Clemens Brentano published two essays that seem to have almost nothing in common. Der Philister vor, in und nach der Geschichte is a political pamphlet, directed at contemporary bourgeois society, but it is also a disturbingly anti-Semitic text. “Erklärung der Sinnbilder auf dem Umschlage dieser Zeitschrift,” on the other hand, is an aesthetic text, dealing with such topics as symbolism, allegory, and mimesis. However, the Philister essay is as much a work on art as it is an ideological text, and “Erklärung der  Sinnbilder” addresses both political and aesthetic issues. The two texts have in common that they aim at unity: the unity of art and the unity of society. In other words, the idea of aesthetic unity is a political project as well, aiming at forming a unified society. The political and aesthetic unity is formed by means imitation, which enables Brentano to construct an ideal of sameness, that is, a paradoxical unity of similarity, identity, and difference. However, sameness means also the exclusion of the alien, of the Jewish in particular. Political and aesthetic sameness forms relations of identity between objects that are similar, thus excluding the dissimilar.

    Am Rande der Kunst: Arabeske, Ornament und die Heteronomie der Ästhetik Goethes2015In: Germanisch-Romanische Monatsschrift, ISSN 0016-8904, Vol. 65, no 2, p. 149-163Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay argues that the marginal aesthetic phenomenon of arabesque and ornament played a central role in Goethe’s aesthetic thinking since the classical age. As a point of transition, the arabesque establishes a functional link between the world and the work, which enables the leap from the world into art and which promotes the experience of art in a higher sense. The aesthetic economy of the arabesque, which through saving forms the backdrop against which the lavishness of the work of art appears, points to an implicit idea of aesthetic heteronomy in Goethe’s theory of art, a heteronomy that shows the true physical, social, and historical context of the work.

    Det estetiskas gränser: Inledning till estetikens problem hos Goethe2011In: Lychnos, ISSN 0076-1648, p. 227-239Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper provides an introduction to the problem of aesthetics in Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s oeuvre. Considering his aesthetic writing as a problem-historical process rather than as a comprehensive aesthetic theory or as an unsystematic collection of theoretical judgements, I would like to suggest a new way of analysing Goethe’s conception of the aesthetic. Although he never presented a program, he continuously addressed the same set of questions: What is representation? How is nature transformed into art? How do we represent images with words? What are the limits of the work? These questions, which all pertain to issues of representation, are never given a definite answer but remain open throughout Goethe’s work. In this paper I highlight four areas in which these questions are investigated: 1) the ambivalent interpretation of the concept of mimesis; 2) the problem of symbolic representation; 3) descriptions of works of art; 4) the arabesque and other forms of non-significant representations. Goethe’s discussion of these problems suggests that a classical, representational episteme coexists and, at the same time, is at odds with a modern, organic episteme.

    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how the experience of reproductions – drawings, copperplate engravings, woodcuts, lithography, plaster casts, and so forth – influenced Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s conception of art in general and his descriptions of art (e.g., ekphrases, reviews, and autobiographical accounts) in particular. Well acquainted with the technologies of reproduction of his time, Goethe, often in collaboration with Johann Heinrich Meyer, acknowledged the crucial role of reproductions for the understanding of the productive idea of the original work. Experiences of reproductions and comparisons between copies, drafts, and the original enabled Goethe to grasp the idea as an ever-transforming productive constant of the continuous process of becoming of the work

    Grenzerfahrungen: Studien zu Goethes Ästhetik2018 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [de]

    Die Goethezeit fällt mit der Geburt und Konsolidierung der Ästhetik zusammen, die von den Idealisten und Romantikern als einheitsstiftendes Zentrum des Denkens konzipiert wurde. In diesem Zuge formulierten sie auch ein neues Verständnis der Autonomie des Kunstwerkes und des Künstlers, das für den heutigen Diskurs über Kunst gültig geblieben ist. Das vorliegende Buch hingegen sucht die Grenzbereiche des Ästhetischen dieser prägenden Jahre der Ästhetik auf, um den unsicheren Zustand ihrer Entstehung zu untersuchen. Johann Wolfgang Goethe beeinflusste durch verschiedene Rollen, als Autor, Künstler, Beamter, Herausgeber und Inspirator, die Gestaltung der Ästhetik. Er thematisiert in seinen Schriften immer Fragen der Grenzen des Ästhetischen. In fünf Kapiteln, die sich der ästhetischen Erfahrung, dem Symbolbegriff, der Ästhetik der Arabeske, dem Ziel der Preisaufgaben und der Beschreibungskunst Goethes widmen, untersucht das Buch die Beweglichkeit der Grenzen eines noch nicht definierten Diskurses.

    Kommunikativ ambivalens i Joel Petterssons Måndagsmorgon2011In: Avain - Kirjallisuudentutkimuksen aikakauslehti, ISSN 1795-3790, E-ISSN 2242-3796, no 3, p. 38-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In my paper I investigate the presence of communicative ambivalence in Joel Pettersson’s story Måndagsmorgon (Monday Morning), which was written in great haste in 1921 and published posthumously in 2004. The story cannot be seen as a unified work, rather, it is a sort of an amalgamation of autobiography, myth, and anecdote. The communicative ambivalence of the story is detectible in the tension between oral narration and written narration, a tension that is materialised in what I label Petters­ son’s writing. The term “writing” suggests the style of the work in a very concrete sense and includes motifs, themes, vocabulary, orthography, syntax, handwriting, and the visual appearance of the handwritten manuscript. On one hand, Pettersson’s frequent use of dialectal words and syntax simulates oral language. On the other hand, the story displays a great fascination with written language and the act of writing as such. However, written language and simulated oral language respectively undermine each other, engendering a form of writing that is essentially ambivalent. This is visible in how Pettersson writes his text: its uninterrupted, unedited, and inconsistent flow of words indicates the presence of, and a conflict between both oral and written language.

    The Alienated Form of Nature: The Critique of Imitation and Aesthetic Knowing in the young Goethe's Aesthetic Writings

    This essay examines the transformation of the concept of mimesis (imitation, Nachahmung der Natur) in the theoretical writings of the young Johann Wolfgang Goethe and its implications for the conception of aesthetic knowing. The Sturm und Drang period in general and Goethe, the period's most influential writer, in particular are usually regarded as skeptical about or even hostile to the classicist ideal of imitation. In this essay I argue that Goethe's conception of mimesis is closely related to his idea that nature is not immediately represented in art. Imitation of nature is the result of a process of alienation, which transforms nature into an aesthetic object. It is only in this transformed state, as "inner form" (innere Form), that nature is available to man. Furthermore, this notion of imitation as alienation points to the profound change that epitomizes epistemology in the late eighteenth century, that is, the transition from the classical episteme of representation to the modern, organic episteme.

    Ofullbordade utopier: tyskspråkig litteratur från tre århundraden2016 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vår begeistring av texter är, det menar den österrikiska författaren Ingeborg Bachmann, egentligen en begeistring av det vita, oskrivna bladet, alltså av "en brist som är så stor att den sporrar oss att handskas med litteraturen som en utopi". Utopin som en estetisk erfarenhet av något ofullbordat och något som inte kan fullbordas går som en röd tråd genom de läsningar av Herder, Schlegel, Novalis, Hölderlin, Musil, Mann, Celan, Szondi, Bachmann och Jelinek som är samlade här. Hos dessa gestaltas det utopiska som ett ständigt någon annanstans och någon annan tid, en icke-plats i tid och rum.

    Romanticism and Modernity: Master Narrative and the Ideological Construction of Literary History2011In: Constructions of German Romanticism: Six Studies / [ed] Mattias Pirholt, Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2011, p. 153-181Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the birth of romantic criticism with Mme de Staël’s De l’Alle- magne and Heine’s Die romantische Schule, Romanticism has been con- strued as either a progressive movement, the fulfilment of the tenden- cies articulated by Enlightenment, or a reactionary phase, preoccu- pied with subjective emotions rather than with the objective reality and embracing the irrationality of Sturm und Drang. The tendency in recent research is to focus on the progressive nature of Romanticism, which is seen as the continuation of the radical ideas of Enlighten- ment and the German response to the French Revolution. Romanti- cism is no longer construed as the break with rationalism, but rather as the transformation of it or the synthesis of rationality and irration- ality. In the field of aesthetics, on the other hand, the conception of Romanticism as anti-classical, anti-enlightened anti-mimetic prevails. Mimesis and poiesis are, according to this line of argument, mutually exclusive. Interestingly, the progressive interpretation coincides with the reactionary, which construes romanticism as a break with Enlight- enment and, consequently, as a break with mimeticism. In aesthetics, then, romantic reactionism and the narrative of modernity paradoxic- ally concur. To advocates of progression as well as of reaction, imita- tion constitutes a problematic relation of dependence between subject and object, a relation that undermines the autonomy of both subject and art, which is central to the idea of bourgeois modernity.
