Ulysses Underground: Joyce and Contemporary Art

Published in Heusser, M., Imberger, F. & Paparunas, P. Parallaxing Joyce. Tübingen: Narr Franke. 2016
Abstract A number of contemporary artists have sought to put Joyce's literary work into visual or plastic form. The reasons his work lends itself to appropriation by the other arts has to do with its own permeability and hospitality to non-literary material, the relative absence of an authorial presence or of a master narrative, the absence of a hierarchy of taste, a formal disposition toward fragmentarity and discontinuity, toward a multiplicity of voices, of points of view, and of linguistic registers. Joseph Kosuth's installation "Les aventures d'Ulysse sous terre" at an underground parking garage in Lyon, France, is a particularly spectacular example of the adaptation of Joyce's work to the medium of conceptual art.
