Betrachtung des Gegenstandes in Otto Dix' Radierzyklus "Der by Cordula Gries

By Cordula Gries

Akademische Arbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Kunst - Grafik, Druck, observe: 1,0, , Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Im ersten Weltkrieg verbrachte der Künstler Otto Dix vier Jahre als Soldat überwiegend an der Westfront und bewährte sich im Kampfeinsatz. Mit nur einer leichten Verletzung, mehreren Beförderungen und Auszeichnungen - darunter das Eiserne Kreuz II. Klasse - überlebte er das Inferno quickly unversehrt. Seiner Kreativität tat der militärische Einsatz keinen Abbruch. Im Gegenteil, sozusagen im Schützengraben und unter feindlichem Beschuss fertigte er über six hundred Kreidezeichnungen und Gouachen, in denen er seine Erlebnisse reflektierte.

Erst ein halbes Jahrzehnt nach Kriegsende kehrte Dix sozusagen auf das Schlachtfeld des Krieges zurück, um sich seinen persönlichen Erlebnissen und Erfahrungen zu stellen. Dafür bedurfte er jedoch neuer Ausdrucksformen und die fand er im Erfassen der Realität und nackten Wirklichkeit. Der Schützengraben von 1923 (Abb. 18), in dem er den Betrachter mit dem qualvollen Sterben an der Kriegsfront konfrontierte, wurde aufgrund dieses brutalen „Verismus“, so die Bezeichnung der zeitgenössischen Kritik, von manchen Rezipienten als abstoßend empfunden. In dieser Schaffensphase (in den Jahren 1923 und 1924) entstand auch der Radierzyklus Der Krieg, der in 50 Radierungen ein landscape der schrecklichen und desolaten Zustände an der Westfront des Ersten Weltkrieges entfaltet und der von den Zeitgenossen, welche der Kriegskatastrophe nunmehr kritisch gegenüberstanden, als ein wahrhaftiges Abbild der Wirklichkeit begriffen wurde.

Die Arbeit beschreibt die Radierungen und stellt ihre kunstgeschichtliche Bedeutung dar.
