Based on the doctoral thesis of Tanja von Dahlern, this book examines the ways in which literary works have been staged and transformed in visual art, specifically in the field of contemporary film and video installation since the mid-1990s. Focusing on artworks by Kutlug Ataman, Gerard Byrne, Stan Douglas, and Fiona Tan, it explores the role of literature in relation to cultural memory, as a place where narrative conventions are negotiated, and where cultural space is mediated and constructed. Transformation is discussed as an important element in our culture today, drawing on theories from intertextuality, intermediality, adaptation studies, and artistic appropriation.
