Abstract

Texts by Andrew Hui, Aleida Assmann, Peter Davidhazi, Patrick Vincent, Ann Thompson, Lily Saint, Lisbeth Fuisz, Ihor Junyk, Christoph Lindner, Benjamin Morris,  Nour Dados, Peter Burleigh, Nicola Glaubitz, David Morley. Why do certain works of art make it into the canon while others just enjoy a brief moment of recognition, if at all? How do moments produce monuments, and why are monuments erased from our cultural memory in only a moment? – Taking into account these cultural processes of creating, storing, remembering and forgetting that are omnipresent and have an immense influence on how we perceive artefacts and cultural events, the articles included in this collection analyze the phenomenon of cultural production, transmission and reception from various angles, drawing on approaches from both literary and cultural studies. With its transdisciplinary approach, this book uniquely responds to an everyday cultural phenomenon that up to now has not been given such wide-ranging attention.
