Psychomotor Aesthetics

Movement and Affect in Modern Literature and Film

Ana Hedberg Olenina

  • Examines notions of expressive movement and kinesthetic empathy in Russian avant-garde film and literature
  • Historicizes the relationship between psychophysiology and the arts in early 20th-century Russia, revealing a dialog between Russian, European, and American sources
  • Provides a critical evaluation of Modernist authors' responses to psychophysiology and psychotechnics, with implications for todayâs neurocognitive approaches to aesthetics
