ABSTRACT. Going beyond the surface of expressionist aesthetics (beyond the visible and easily recognizable stylistic repertoire) to the genesis of this movement around a totally volatile concept, ethereal like the new pathos, this foray into the genetic realm of expressionism shall clarify its essence and manifestation. Rather rhetorical and empathic than endowed with a clearly-cut programmatic platform, expressionism manifests itself more functionally than the actual concept: instead of suggesting aesthetic concepts, it questions the modernist artistic concepts in use, investigating, seeking, and challenging their mutual dialogue in terms of their relevance to human sensitivity. Therefore it defines itself as a new anthropocentric humanism. pp. 187–203

Keywords: aesthetics; expressionism; rite; transfer; poetics; function
