Lęk i czerwona kotara. Prestiż a twórczość nie-filmowa Davida Lyncha
Słowa kluczowe:David Lynch, economy of prestige
Inspired by David Lynch’s works of visual art, this paper is an attempt to identify some extra-artistic mechanisms (the art market) relating to artworks. As a result, his non-cinematic works have been analysed here in the context of the mechanisms operating in culture, as indicated by Mieke Bal (“cultural imperialism”) and James F. English (“economy of prestige”). The artistic works of the American film director have been located on the main axes identified in this context. In addition to the expressionist-surrealist origin and commonly acknowledged connotations with the works of Edvard Munch, Oskar Kokoschka and Francis Bacon, the author also shows ideological threads combining Lynch’s works with Tadeusz Kantor’s legacy.
