Vision and Visuality

This issue of Maska brings a thematic scope Vision and Visuality (the editor of the thematic scope is Maaike Bleeker), continues the topic of The New European Dramatics (treated in detail in the issue 5-6(70-71)/ 2001, the editor of the thematic scope Petra Pogorevc) with the interview with a Croatian dramatist Ivana Sajko, and treats the marginal theatres. “Vision – the act or faculty of seeing, of sight – is not just a physical operation presenting us with an impression of the world “there to be seen”. A growing awareness of the inevitable entanglement of vision with what is called “visuality” – the distinct historically manifestations of visual experience – in a wide variety of fields, draws attention to the necessity of locating vision within a specific historic and cultural situation,” says Maaike Bleeker in the introduction to Vision and Visuality.
