By Detlev Wannagat

Das Komische ist ein wesentliches aspect jeder Kultur. Es entfaltet seine Wirkung im Spiel mit geltenden Normen, im gezielten Überschreiten der von Anstand und Sitte gesetzten Grenzen, im Unterlaufen der Gesetze einer herrschenden Logik. Seinen Platz findet es vor allem im Performativen, so dass Fest, Tanz und (Schau-)Spiel seine natürlichen Orte sind.

Zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte des Bildes wurde in der korinthischen Vasenmalerei des 7. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. eine Ikonographie des Komischen entwickelt. Detlev Wannagat versteht es, den Blick für diese ersten Entwürfe komischer Figurentypen zu öffnen. Prägnant analysiert er, wie diese Darstellungen im archaischen Griechenland eingesetzt und wahrgenommen wurden. Die bislang vernachlässigte Nahsicht auf die neuen Figurentypen erweckt den erstaunlichen Esprit und überraschenden Witz dieser Bildschöpfungen. Aus dieser anthropologisch zugespitzten Perspektive wirft Detlev Wannagat neues Licht auf die gesellschaftlichen Wertvorstellungen, die in den Bildern des Komischen gebrochen und spielerisch präfiguriert werden. Die griechische Kultur erweist sich auch auf diesem Gebiet als eine Bildkultur, die ungemein kreativ und prägend wirkt.
