My PhD project is based on three central aspects of the 19th century intérieur: The intérieur is the bourgeois space of self-reflection, it is an archive of objects that bear traces, and it is a material utopia where the presence of objects produces a loss of time and space. My thesis is that the main characteristics of European Realism – its concern with objects, its discovery of the narrative power of details and traces, and its search for truth on the surface of things – emerge from these new interpretations of the intérieur. The talk concentrates on the cultural and narrative function of traces.

This talk will be presented in German.
