Abstract

Traditionally the term untranslatable is used when it is impossible to precisely convey the meaning of a word or series of words in one language into another language. In this contribution the question is of whether it might also be so that something expressed by a given code system (for example a text or a score) cannot be expressed in another code system (for example speaking or performance)? Vincent Van Meenen examines the meaning of untranslatability and makes drawings in water paint and Chinese ink whenever he encounters an untranslatable passage in Macbeth.
