Claudia Lehmann,Norberto Gramaccini,Johannes Rößler,Thomas's Chiaroscuro als ästhetisches Prinzip: Kunst und Theorie des PDF

By Claudia Lehmann,Norberto Gramaccini,Johannes Rößler,Thomas Dittelbach

ISBN-10: 3110500353

ISBN-13: 9783110500356

In der italienischen Kunstproduktion und Kunsttheorie der Renaissance bezieht sich der Terminus chiaroscuro in erster Linie auf die Artikulation plastischer Werte, auf das Formulieren eines rilievo. Rilievo meint hier ein innovatives Gestaltungsprinzip, das den Eigenwert der mittelalterlichen Buntfarbe durch den Darstellungswert unbunter Farbtöne ersetzt. Malerei und Graphik tendierten im nordalpinen Raum hingegen dazu, mittels des Helldunkel die Oberflächenbeschaffenheit von Materialien zu evozieren. Aus dieser komparativen Perspektive erfasst der Band das Helldunkel als ästhetisches Prinzip, das als zentrale Signatur der gesamteuropäischen Kunstgeschichte zwischen 1300 und 1600 zu verstehen ist.

Francesco Bonami's L'arte nel cesso: Da Duchamp a Cattelan, ascesa e declino PDF

By Francesco Bonami

ISBN-10: 8804679751

ISBN-13: 9788804679752

Con l'autoironia che lo contraddistingue, Francesco Bonami, uno dei più brillanti critici d'arte internazionali, riprende il discorso avviato dieci anni fa in Lo potevo fare anch'io e ammette che, in fondo, tante opere alla cui vista restiamo sgomenti forse avremmo potute farle natural noi, e comunque, anche se le ha fatte qualcun altro prima, questo non significa affatto che si tratti di arte. in step with concludere, provocatoriamente ma non del tutto, che l'arte contemporanea - che ha avuto inizio nel 1917 con l'orinale capovolto (Fontana) di Marcel Duchamp - oggi, a un secolo esatto, è giunta alla sua fantastic, e deve lasciare il posto a una nuova fase. E con che cosa si è conclusa? Con America, il cesso d'oro 18 carati di Maurizio Cattelan esposto nell'autunno 2016 al Guggenheim di long island, dove lo si può non solo ammirare ma persino usare.

In questi cento anni, ci cube Bonami, abbiamo visto davvero di tutto, dagli artisti che sulla scia di Duchamp espongono un oggetto, a chi propone un concetto (come Una e tre sedie di Joseph Kosuth), a chi mostra un progetto, ovvero parole, disegni, grafici che vengono presentati come opere d'arte ma al momento sono semplici ipotesi in attesa di essere realizzate (come accade according to esempio con Christo, ma non con Peter Fend, che in genere espone solo fantasiose e irrealizzabili ipotesi sul mondo, come cambiare i confini di certe nazioni o deviare il corso del Danubio). Tutti accomunati dall'intento di sorprendere.

Attraverso una serie di racconti e riflessioni, l'autore ci mostra perché ora all'arte non bastano più solo idee che si rincorrono con l'obiettivo di essere una più rivoluzionaria dell'altra. E perché, provocazione dopo provocazione, l. a. contemporaneità ha esaurito il suo potere di stupire. E finish che, in line with tornare a essere utile, l'arte deve ritrovare los angeles capacità d'inventare e narrare storie, recuperando quell'essenziale cocktail di ingenuità e genialità che è alla base della creatività umana. Un po' come fa Charles Ray, in polemica con l'astrazione del Novecento, con il suo bambino che gioca con una macchinina. «Il bambino di Ray non è semplice, ma è accessibile» scrive Bonami. «Qualsiasi personality di qualsiasi parte del mondo comprende quel gesto. L'oggetto, quale che sia nella mano del bimbo, diventa un universo di pensieri, l'inizio di una storia, di un viaggio che il bambino a long wayà stando fermo quasi sdraiato consistent with terra, praticamente senza muoversi. Ecco il destino dell'arte. Farci entrare in una storia, farci iniziare un viaggio senza doversi mai spostare.»

Carolin Modes's Die Diskursanalyse. Entstehung und Theorien von Saussure, PDF

By Carolin Modes

ISBN-10: 3668140189

ISBN-13: 9783668140189

Akademische Arbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Kunst - Allgemeines, Kunsttheorie, be aware: 1,3, Universität Leipzig, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In dieser Arbeit geht es um den Begriff Diskurs und die daraus resultierende Diskursanalyse. Als praktisches Beispiel für einen Diskurs dient die „Neue Leipziger Schule“, eine Künstlergruppe bei der die Grenzen zwischen Diskurs und Realität verschwimmen. Für die theoretische Herleitung der Entstehung des Zusammenhangs von Wissen und Wirklichkeit werden drei theoretische Positionen heran gezogen.

Zunächst wird auf die Theorie Ferdinand de Saussures (1857-1913) eingegangen, um die soziale Bedingtheit von Kommunikation aufzuzeigen. Daran anschließend wird mit Hilfe spezifischer Arbeiten Michel Foucaults (1926-1984) auf die Bedeutung der Diskurse als Erscheinungs- und Zirkulationsformen des Wissens hingewiesen. Anhand der kultursoziologischen Erkenntnisse von Pierre Bourdieu (1930-2002) wird schließlich die Bedeutung der Akteure und ihrer Macht in der Produktion von Diskursen, Kategorien und Wirklichkeit dargestellt.

Begriffe oder Kategorien wie z.B. Familie oder Geschlecht scheinen natürlich und selbstverständlich, sind aber eigentlich kollektive Vereinbarungen, die lediglich nicht mehr hinterfragt werden. Damit etwas Wirklichkeit wird, bedarf es der Akteure mit ihren jeweiligen Interessen, die über die Macht oder Legitimität zu sprechen verfügen, denn es ist nur einigen wenigen möglich Wissen zu etablieren. Diese Akteure lassen Dinge entstehen in dem sie über sie sprechen, sie abgrenzen und benennen.
