Synopsis:

"Archaeologies of Modernity "explores the shift from the powerful tradition of literary forms of "Bildung"--the education of the individual as the self--to the visual forms of "Bildung" (from "Bild") that characterize German modernism and the European avant-garde. Interrelated chapters examine the work of Franz Kafka, Jean/Hans Arp, Walter Benjamin, and Carl Einstein, and of artists such as Oskar Kokoschka or Kurt Schwitters, in the light of the surge of an autoformation ("Bildung") of verbal and visual images at the core of expressionist and surrealist aesthetics and the art that followed. In this first scholarly focus on modernist avant-garde "Bildung "in its entwinement of conceptual modernity with forms of the archaic, Rumold resituates the significance of the poet and art theorist Einstein and his work on the language of primitivism and the visual imagination. "Archaeologies of Modernity "is a major reconsideration of the conception of the modernist project and will be of interest to scholars across the disciplines.
