Krieg in den Medien (Amsterdamer Beiträge zur neueren by Heinz-Peter Preußer

By Heinz-Peter Preußer

Wie Kriege dargestellt werden, hat Einfluss auf die Kriegsf?hrung. Das gilt nicht erst f?r die elektronischen Waffeng?nge moderner Zeitrechnung. Mit dem Zweiten Golfkrieg aber, so eine g?ngige Lesweise, hat sich die Wahrnehmung von Kriegen selbst ver?ndert. used to be wird perzipiert, was once bleibt au?en vor, was once geht unter in der Flut an Informationen? Nachrichten ?ber Kriege sind immer ungleich auf Interessenlagen bezogen. In den Blick ger?t, used to be Medien verbreiten. Andere Kriege existieren in der Realit?t, aber nicht im Bewusstsein von Zeitgenossen weltweit. Fiktionale Verarbeitungen von Kriegen k?nnen, anders und intensiver als die Nachricht, die Gewalt reflektieren, sie einordnen, ihr Sinn geben oder sie verwerfen. Sie sind Mittel oder Teil der kriegerischen Strategie und der Propaganda, k?nnen aber ebenso intestine Gegenentw?rfe anbieten zu den Gr?ueltaten, die sie repr?sentieren. Weder Fiktionalit?t oder details, noch die paintings der medialen Umsetzung stellen, an sich betrachtet, eine Vorentscheidung dar, wie kritisch oder wie affirmativ Kriegshandlungen geschildert oder gedeutet werden. Der vorliegende Band zeigt diese grunds?tzliche Ambivalenz in den gro?en, epochalen Umbr?chen der Mediendispositive und den inter- und transmedialen Wandlungen insgesamt. Er reflektiert sie anhand der Geschichte der Einzelmedien wie Fotografie und Malerei, H?rspiel, Tageszeitung, Essay, Internetforum oder Fernsehnachricht, an der Arbeit von PR-Agenturen oder in der fiktionalen Verarbeitung etwa im comedian. Krieg in den Medien bringt zudem Einzelanalysen und Autorenportr?ts in den Gattungen Roman, Poetikvorlesung, Spielfilm, Drama oder politisch-philosophische Theorie.
