Comfort in Contemporary Art Shadow Works Against the Background of Blumenberg’s Notion of ‘Comfort in the Cave’ Angela Breidbach One of the key dimensions of comfort is ‘consolation’. It is through the sharing of stories that we console each other. The art of comforting hence is the art of storytelling. As an art historian, I am interested in how consoling narratives unfold in visual art, or, more specifically, in what I call ‘shadow works’ in contemporary art.

But then the Silver Space Pillows didn’t float away and my career didn’t float away, either« (Warhol [1975] 2007: 150). Außer der Installation »Silver Clouds« wird noch ein Siebdruck auf Papier präsentiert, der die Besucher irritierte, zugleich aber, so meine These, für das, was Pop im Sinne der Ästhetik
