Abstract (in English): 

Peter Gendolla pursues a paradox accompanying the literary avant-garde from Romanticism to the most current electronic installations; namely, that they want to bring back the cold, dead culture into “natural” life and that they are doing this with the most advanced technological procedures. They become more and more “technical” with the impulse not only to dissolve the division of the genres but also to transfer art at least by way of literary means into “natural” forms of life; thus, they are continually developing new forms of aesthetic difference that have to be differentiated from either nature or culture.
