Abstract [da]

Det er ikke kun religionen, der iscenesætter den menneskelige situation. I denne artikel  undersøges det, hvordan æstetiske og performative begivenheder har potentiale til at give os erfaringer af ikkeviden, af det at vi ikke ved, hvad vi ikke ved, dvs. af det der er større end os selv, det metafysiske, det umulige og det ukendte. Der er hos både troende og ikketroende et dybt behov for at forholde sig til disse uudgrundelige dimensioner af eksistensen, uden at det deraf følger, at der søges nogen ultimativ sandhed. Lad det være sagt med det samme: absolut transcendens er umulig for os; vi kan ikke fysisk overskride os selv og sætte os i gudens sted. Kun gennem vores forestillingsevne kan vi sætte os ud over os selv. Vi kender ikke den virkelighed, som vi ikke desto mindre rituelt og kunstnerisk skaber udtryk for. Så hvordan iscenesætter vi oplevelser af det metafysiske, således at det understreges, at de ikke kan andet end udspringe af hele vores krop og sanseapparat? Hvordan kan vi kunstnerisk omgås religiøse eller transcenderende erfaringer uden at de ophæves til Sandheden? Det er spørgsmål, som forsøges besvaret i denne artikel. 

Abstract [en]

The human condition is not only staged by religion. This article explores how aesthetic and performative events have the potential to convey to us the experience of non-knowledge, i.e.   that of which we do not know what we do not know; in other words, that which is greater than ourselves, the metaphysical, the impossible, and the unknown. A deep need to relate to these unfathomable dimensions of existence exists for both believers and non-believers, without consequence to seek any ultimate truth. Let it be said once and for all: absolute transcendence is impossible for us; we cannot physically exceed ourselves and put ourselves in God's place. We can only transcend ourselves through our imagination. We do not know the reality that we nevertheless creativity seek to attribute form to through ritual and art. So, how do we stage experiences of the metaphysical in ways that underline the fact that these forms cannot but arise out of our bodily perception? How can religious or transcending  experience be staged without the claim to Truth? These are questions that this article seeks to answer.
