Abstract

This essay explores media-related aspects of literariness in video art and examines them on the basis of spoken language – in particular, voice, its mediality and physical nature. Based on new cultural-studies approaches to the category and phenomenality of ‚voice‘, works by the artists Jochen Gerz, Vito Acconci, Gary Hill, Korpys/Löffler and Tracey Emin are considered. The literariness of video art proves to be a distinct and complex transmedial field; its investigation necessitates philological and media studies parameters alike.
