Abstract:The phenomenon of metaization, namely explicit or implicit auto-reflexivity, has been theoretically approached only in the latest two decades, although it has been present since quite distant historical epochs. The present contribution presents several general characteristic aspects which are connected to the apparently new domain of meta-refentiality. The interest towards this theoretic field resembles, to a certain extent, to that developed for intertextuality some decades ago. This contribution does not regard only the traditional arts such as literature in general, poetry, painting, but also the others in which meta-referentiality has been spotted later. At this point, we have in mind architecture, sculpture, music, theatre, film, photography, animated cartoon, advertisement, computer games, etc. Our contribution develops some theoretical aspects along with the various modalities which are especially proper for genres approaching meta-referentiality later. Each presentation is provided with concise commentaries and examples. A synthesis of the already known data regarding metaization is attempted. The performative aspects of the creation process are brought forward as well. The present contribution intends to be an introduction to this domain which is not vey well known or debated in our country. A special practical exception still can be mentioned. We refer to Victor Ieronim Stoichita’s very interesting volumes concerning painting and sculpture, his books being recently translated into Romanian as well. Details and examples are offered for all kind of arts because this paper means to establish a fertile premise for further Romanian analyses and approaches of this challenging field.
