By Yvonne Strüwing

Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Kunst - Grafik, Druck, word: 2,0, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, 142 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: 1 Einleitung

No hay remedio. Diese Aussage untertitelt eine Szene der Desastres de los angeles Guerra von Francisco de Goya. Sie drückt sie aus, used to be Krieg nimmt: alles. Krieg ist ein Zustand, der alles optimistic in der Welt negiert, ein Zustand, der nahezu kompletten Destruktion. Es gibt keinen Halt, keinen Trost und keine Hoffnung mehr. Danach ist nichts mehr so, wie es einmal conflict: die, die überlebt haben, sind nicht nur physisch gebrandmarkt, sondern tragen auch tiefe Wunden in sich. guy versteht nicht, used to be Menschen sich gegenseitig im kriegerischen Wahnsinn antun können, wie der Mensch zu einer gefühlskalten Mordmaschine mutieren kann. Wo Worte versagen, Krieg zu beschreiben, bedarf es der Kunst.
Wie kann diese Grausamkeit dargestellt werden? Welche reason hat der Krieg; kann guy sie verallgemeinern, oder muss guy sie als unterschiedliche zeittypische Umgänge mit Krieg klar differenzieren? used to be kann und soll dem Betrachter vermittelt werden? Macht sich nicht jeder Künstler mit der Darstellung des Krieges schuldig, die Sensationslust des Betrachters zu wecken und auszunutzen? Ist es Künstlern gelungen, diesem Vorwurf zu entgehen? Bezieht der Künstler Stellung; ergreift er Partei; prangert er an?
Goya hat mit seinem Zyklus Desastres de l. a. Guerra die Kriegsdarstellung revolutioniert. Er gibt in seiner Kunst neue Antworten auf die aufgeworfenen Fragen und schafft es insbesondere durch die Konzentration auf einzelne grausame Szenen, dass der Betrachter sich dem Schrecken aussetzen muss. Goyas Desastres sind ein Wendepunkt der Kriegsdarstellung und gelten als „das bedeutendste Mahnmal der bildenden Kunst gegen den Krieg“(1) , das sich durch Goyas spezifische Formensprache auszeichnet, die dem Betrachter schonungslos die Greuel des Krieges darbietet. In dem Buch Das Leiden anderer betrachten(2) behauptet Susan Sontag, dass es Goya gelingt, sich dem Vorwurf des Voyeurismus zu entziehen.
Die vorliegende Magisterarbeit stellt diesen Zyklus in einen epochenübergreifenden Kontext. Dies ist in diesem Umfang in der Kunsthistorik bisher noch nicht unternommen worden. Indem weitere druckgraphische Zyklen miteinbezogen werden, wird untersucht, ob Goyas Desastres tatsächlich einzigartig sind und ob sie die erste schonungslose Anklage gegen den Krieg sind.
