I Saggi di Lexia

Raccogliendo l’eredità di Eco e Lotman, I Saggi di Lexia propongono ricerche empiriche, analisi di casi e approfondimenti teorici sui temi più vari con il fine di descrivere e comprendere quel vastissimo ambito culturale, insieme di testi e discorsi, di attività interpretative e di pratiche codificate, di linguaggi e di generi, di fenomeni comunicativi e di effetti di senso, di tecniche espressive e inventari di contenuti, di messaggi, riscritture e deformazioni che insieme costituiscono il mondo in cui viviamo.

THE WATERFALL AND THE FOUNTAIN
COMPARATIVE SEMIOTIC ESSAYS ON CONTEMPORARY ARTS IN CHINA

a cura di Massimo Leone, Bruno Surace e Jun Zeng

Geographically and anthropologically distant cultures inspire awe and fascination: for centuries, Europe and China, the West and the East have fantasized about each other, longed for journeying toward each other, mutually projected onto each other their own alter egos. Modern innovation in the transport of people, goods, and especially cultural contents in digital form has increasingly narrowed the distance between these two geographic and human poles. Today, China is everywhere in the West, and viceversa. Yet, facility of access is not always tantamount to in–depth comprehension. Century–long differences, prejudices, and asymmetries still persist. Comprising the essays of several specialists in cultural theory and analysis, both from Europe and China, the volume seeks to uncover the semiotic formula underpinning the encounter, the dialogue, but also the clash between Western and Eastern aesthetics, especially in the neglected field of popular culture and arts. The title hints at the Chinese fascination for waterfalls and the natural flowing of the elements, compared with the European attraction to fountains as exploitation of technological mastery over nature: each chapter in the volume focuses on many aesthetic dialectics, spanning from literature to painting, from videogames to fooD.
