Re-enactment can translate ideas, history and theory into physical entities and actions. At the centre is the concept of visualising past events, initiated by the wish to make it possible to experience fundamentally unrepeatable history, and thus expose the mechanisms and fantasies of the ‘new’. Re-enactment presents an opportunity to observe media and their contexts in a new way, to immerse oneself in the conditions of production through one’s own actions. In this respect, re-enactment should not necessarily be considered an attempt at a faithful ‘re-staging’, but an interpretation, which makes use of new means and takes place in an expanded or altered context. A re-enactment in art, design, science and technology is indeed, however, a re-staging, to the extent that it is necessary to present it within a setting as a singular event.
This first volume from the series Re-enactments in Art, Design, Science and Technology gathers contributions to the salons sponsored by the Hochschule für Künste Bremen, from 2016 to late 2018. These are supplemented by texts written by those who were invited to contribute to the book, all of which focus on the re-enactment of technologies and theories and are distinguished by an artistic, scientific method of work.
