Aspects of otherness since 1800
As "wild" we generally refer to the unbridled and foreign in contrast to the controlled and own. The contributions in this anthology show that the border between wild and civilized cannot be drawn so sharply. Using examples from the fields of art and design, such as wallpaper, logos, interior design and fashion, as well as paintings, photographs, films, assemblages and installation art, the attributions of the wild to the ethnic other are questioned.
Almost all the essays in this book are based on lectures that took place in the context of the conference Wild Things in Art and Design that we organized at the Design and Culture Days Trier in autumn 2015.
