Resumé

Comparison as a methodological or technical tool to perceive something that was not perceptible beforehand is a complex manoeuvre that gives rise to both potentials and challenges. While emphasising concealed or unseen similarities in artworks or literature, comparison also risks operating on the expense of the potential distance between the two subject matters compared. This article argues that the complex and curious art project Dominique Lambert (2004-2016) by the French artist Stéphanie Solinas offers itself as a valuable starting point for a discussion of a range of meta-theoretical and methodological questions related to ideas of comparison in a broader theoretical framework. The project not only questions how or when a comparison is possible, but also what the nature of comparisons is, and how comparisons are legitimised as such in humanistic knowledge production. Thus, it is the central hypothesis of the article that modes of comparing build upon ideas of virtuality, that is, that the ‘object’ of the comparison is produced as a manoeuvre connecting or relating two previously separated subject matters. Accordingly, Gilles Deleuze’ idea of virtuality is applied in order to understand and discuss prevailing uses of comparison, e.g. in the recent field of Digital Humanities.
