Abstract (English)

" '..nothing has substance for him but what has already been mediated by memory,' Adorno writes of Proust. 'His love dwells on the second life [the afterlife, of posterity], the one which is already over, rather than on the first.' And he continues: 'For Proust's aestheticism, the question of aesthetic quality is of secondary concern. In a famous passage he glorified inferior music for the sake of the listener's memories, which are preserved with far more fidelity and force in an old popular song than in the self-sufficiency of a work by Beethoven.'1 Much in Katharina Fritsch's work speaks to this. The potency of memory propels her art, as does a search for the immediate affectivity integral to childhood experience and only seldom recaptured after, as in unparalleled, unexpected moments of wonder." -- Publisher's website.
