InhalteReplication is the basic motor of biological and social life. The Latin root of Replication is Plico, meaning to fold up or double up. Like folding a piece of paper on itself, a multiplicity is created from a whole and like the folded paper; opposites meet and literally confront one another. In what ways can a historical replica confront and question the present for the future? Can a replica allow us to experience something remote in geographic space? Moreover what constitutes a replica in terms of material, scale, and visual similarity?

Writing is an important part of this course. "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life." This sentence in Oscar Wilde’s essay "The Decay of Lying" (1889) is license for literature to shape reality. We will explore how writing can be used to turn something into its own representation and how this representation can take primacy over the original. Moreover, we ask, can replication as repetition be used as a device to construct narratives? Each student will be asked to create a final project in which they construct a narrative of their own.

Students will also be introduced to material techniques as well such of mold making and casting, 3D scanning and printing through experiments. Each day will consist of readings, lectures, and discussions that question the conventions of linear history, authorship, originality, and mechanical reproduction. Readings will be assigned and discussed at each meeting as well.

The class will be spread in three parts over one month time, from the end of March to the end of April, with a final exhibition / presentation of the students’ projects at the foyer of the Theater Gessnerallee.
