By Walter Grasskamp

Wie „Die Bibliothek von Babel“, die Jorge Luis Borges erfand, ist „Das imaginäre Museum“ eine Jahrhundertmetapher. Sie stammt von André Malraux (1901–1976), der als Romancier und Dandy, als Kulturminister und Kunstschriftsteller zu den herausragenden Repräsentanten des 20. Jahrhunderts zählt. Ebenso renowned wie umstritten, verstand Malraux es glänzend, sich öffentlich zu inszenieren, wofür bis heute eine Fotografie von 1954 steht, die ihn mit den ausgelegten Seiten eines Kunstbuches in seinem Pariser Salon zeigt. Sie bildet den Mittelpunkt des Buches von Walter Grasskamp, das Malraux als Autor und Gestalter vorstellt, der das moderne Kunstbuch profiliert und zugleich die Idee der Weltkunst popularisiert hat. Das Buch diskutiert die Beziehungen des ‚musée imaginaire’ zur Kunsttheorie von Walter Benjamin und präsentiert Vorläufer und Vorbilder, bekannte und weniger bekannte, an die Malraux anknüpfen konnte. Dabei gerät ein vergessenes Pionierunternehmen wieder in den Blick – die großartige ‚Encyclopédie photographique’ de l’art, die der vielseitige Künstler und Autor André Vigneau zwischen 1935 und 1949 geprägt hat – eine lohnende Wiederentdeckung!
Von der ersten ‚documenta’ in Kassel (1955) bis in die Kunst- und Ausstellungspraxis der Gegenwart wird der Erfolg des ‚musée imaginaire’ nachgezeichnet und damit auch das Nachleben eines produktiven Kunstschriftstellers, dem der New Yorker Künstler Dennis Adams 2012 den movie ‚Malraux’s footwear’ gewidmet hat.

Eppure. L’orto di un perdigiorno si chiudeva con una frase che mi è sempre sembrata un modello di vita, un obiettivo da raggiungere: «Ho l. a. dispensa piena». Oggi questa dispensa, forse proprio grazie alla sua malattia, Pia ha trovato modo di aprircela, anzi di spalancarcela. E los angeles scopriamo davvero piena di bellezza, di serenità, di quelle che James Herriot ha chiamato cose sagge e meravigliose, di un’altra speranza. È davvero un dono meraviglioso quello che in primo luogo Pia Pera ha fatto a se stessa e che poi, consistent with nostra fortuna, dopo lunga riflessione ha deciso di condividere con i suoi lettori.
