Download Die Politik in der Kunst und die Kunst in der Politik by Ariane Hellinger,Barbara Waldkirch,Elisabeth Buchner,Helge PDF

By Ariane Hellinger,Barbara Waldkirch,Elisabeth Buchner,Helge Batt

Kunst und Politik sind seit jeher auf das Engste miteinander verflochten. Künstler werden vom politischen Geschehen inspiriert und interpretieren es individuell, entwerfen Gegenwelten, visualisieren Utopien, idealisieren und prangern an. Gleichzeitig stand und steht die Kunst immer auch im Dienste der Politik. Es sind seit Jahrtausenden die politisch Mächtig(st)en, die sich als Stifter, Heilsbringer oder Herrscher portraitieren lassen, die als Mäzene Künstler protegieren um ihren Ruhm mittels Kunstwerken für die Nachwelt anschaulich zu sichern suchen. Später sind es Nationaldenkmäler, Staatskunst und -architektur, die von dem Wert und teilweise auch der Überlegenheit bestimmter Systeme, Ideologien oder Gesellschaften zeugen sollen. Trotz dieser engen Verbindung ist die „Kunst“ an sich nie ein Untersuchungsgegenstand oder Analysekriterium der Politikwissenschaft gewesen, werden Kunstwerke kunsthistorisch kaum in ihrer Funktion für politische Systeme – additionally aus politikwissenschaftlicher Perspektive – betrachtet. Der vorliegende Band versteht sich somit als eine „Handlungsanleitung zur interdisziplinären Offenheit“ – er möchte Interesse wecken für die Schnittmengen, die sich zwischen Kunst und Politik ergeben und will gleichzeitig zu neuen, übergeordneten Fragestellungen anregen.

By Philipp Knesebeck

Seit dem Ende des Ost-West-Konflikts sind „neue“ oder „asymmetrische“ Kriege, die in zerfallenen Staaten, gegen Milizen, Warlords oder Terroristen geführt werden, zur Regel geworden. Die auf das Staatensystem des Westfälischen Friedens zugeschnittene Lehre des gerechten Krieges, nach der in der Philosophie und im Völkerrecht kriegerische Handlungen traditionell bewertet werden, wird so auf die Probe gestellt. Philipp von dem Knesebeck identifiziert diejenigen Aspekte asymmetrischer Konflikte, die Herausforderungen für die Lehre des gerechten Krieges darstellen und zeigt anhand von Beispielen Ansätze für ihre Bewältigung auf. Ein besonderes Augenmerk liegt hierbei auf dem Einfluss, den neue Waffensysteme wie Drohnen und Cyberwaffen auf die Kriegsführung haben. Zudem stellt der Autor eine modifizierte model der Grundlagen der Lehre des gerechten Krieges vor und weist nach, dass diese für die meisten Parteien der neuen Kriege akzeptabel ist.​
