Energetic Bodies: Sciences and Aesthetics of Strength and Strain (Imaginarien der Kraft, 3)


Throughout the fin de sicle, “energy" was a buzzword that was used far beyond the boundaries of the sciences to negotiate the formative scope as well as limits of Western modernity. The human body was positioned at the center of the visualization of this enigmatic drive of all movement in discourses on labor and economics, physical culture, sport, art, and literature.
