Abstract

In this chapter, I present two thoughts in two successive parts. The first part puts forward a general reflection on the concept of cultural transfer (CT) that focuses on its operationality in cultural analysis. The second part follows up with a case study applied to some transnational as well as transhistorical transfers of the Baroque. These studies will be result-oriented, that is, the analysis concentrates on the final stage of the process of transfer, when the cultural material transferred is integrated – or not, as we shall see – into the cultural receiver system.

From Latin America to the Hollywood Blockbuster
The Baroque is back in contemporary culture. The ten essays authored by international scholars, and three interventions by artists, examine the return of the baroque as Neo-Baroque through interdisciplinary perspectives. Understanding the Neo-Baroque as transcultural (between different cultures) and transhistorical (between historical moments) the contributors to this volume offer diverse perspectives that suggest the slipperiness of the Neo-Baroque may best be served by the term ‘Neo-Baroques’. Case studies analysed reflect this plurality and include: the productions of Belgian theatre company Abattoir Fermé; Claire Denis’ French New Extremist film Trouble Every Day; the novel Lujuria tropical by exiled El Salvadorian Quijada Urias; the science fiction blockbuster spectacles The Matrix and eXistenZ; and the spectacular grandeur of early Hollywood movie palaces and the contemporary Las Vegas Strip.
