Index of South and Southeast Asian Art and Archaeology
The ABIA Online bibliography (South and Southeast Asian Art and Archaeology Index) helps scholars and students trace publications on the art and architecture, archaeology, inscriptions, coins and crafts of South and Southeast Asia. Its coverage includes the shared cultural heritage of Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam. It also brings out the bonds between South and Southeast Asia in societal traditions and ceremonies, as evident in inscriptions, trade and craft specializations, right from the prehistoric past up to the present.

ABIA’s geographic and topical reach is wide. Its coverage ranges from excavations at the early cities of the Indus Valley in Pakistan to the sculptural richness of Angkor’s temples in Cambodia; from Buddhist manuscript art in Nepal and Tibet to contemporary painting in Bali; from textiles woven for early kings of Thailand to present day fashion in the booming cities of India. Timewise, ABIA’s coverage spans from the time when human activity becomes archaeologically manifest, to modern times.
Specialist bibliographers have compiled some 55,000 records since 1928. Many of these carry annotations that concisely explain their contents. All records come with field-specific keywords. Recent records often offer direct links through DOI or http addresses to the articles. The ABIA Online is updated on a quarterly basis to keep up with new academic publications. The database is a long-term recipient of support by the Jan Gonda Fonds of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Wilhelm Worringer und der Geist der Moderne
Wilhelm Worringers Theoreme zu Ornament und Fläche, sein Plädoyer für eine neue Denksinnlichkeit (Spiritualität) und seine radikale Absage an das klassische Nachahmungsparadigma erweisen sich als Schlüsselargumente der hier eröffneten These, dass die Künste um 1900 auf das Krisensymptom entzogener Wirklichkeit und Referentialität mit dem Paradox der Sichtbarmachung unsichtbarer Evidenzen reagieren. Wie bedeutsam Worringers anthropologisch argumentierende Studie 'Abstraktion und Einfühlung' (1908) insbesondere für die poetischen, photographischen und künstlerischen Konzepte der Moderne ist, wird unter anderem an den Werken von Strindberg, Rilke, Hofmannsthal, Klimt, Loos, Moholy-Nagy aufgezeigt
