Abstract [en]

The contemporary art scene includes a large number of art works which utilise existing film material. This dissertation assesses many of these works and includes artists such as Douglas Gordon, Christoph Girardet, Stephanie Smith, Pierre Bismuth, Pierre Huyghe, Susan Hiller, Matthias Müller, Fiona Banner, Stan Douglas, Christoph Draeger, and others who have worked in a similar field. Today, these frequent but specific art events are part of an art tradition as well as a film tradition, and their explicit interartiality calls for an interdisciplinary research method. This dissertation, therefore, closely examines the interrelation of art and film, and the intersection between art and film theory, drawing upon the broad field generally referred to as "visual theory" or "visual culture".

The purpose of this dissertation is to study the phenomenon of audio-visual appropriation. By discussing the relation between the "ready-made", and the strategy of "appropriation" and "rearticulation", a theoretical background to the concept of audio-visual appropriation is formed in Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. The following three chapters are devoted to analyses of art events that have taken place from the late 1970s, with emphasis on the 1990s, and concern the conceptual, aesthetic, and contextual tendencies in the contemporary art scene. The art scene is here understood as a discursive field of the art event, gallery space, exhibitions, texts, reviews, and academic discourse. The most frequently encountered film material are the films of Alfred Hitchcock, but a great many other films are also used. New meanings are generated by the new works as well as for the films that have been used. Just as familiar films are experienced in new ways as they are transferred to an art institutional context, this study throws new light on the contemporary art scene and the changes which have taken place when film plays such a major role.
