Art from Death Orginated
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of Philosophy, Aesthetics.
2013 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Every artwork is the first and last of it kind. Nothing happens the same way twice. But if this is the case, then what limits can we impose on our understanding of the historical development of art? The poles in our conceptual schema of the development of art are analogous to human life, which is placed between the poles of non-existence. This schema is used in our understanding of art, interpretation, and metaphor. Being a complex part in the intersection between life and death, this becomes transposed from experiences to things, reified objects that can make the analysis of these entities cognitively respectable. To transfer them back to experience is to see them as part of our cultural understanding:  the movement from death to life and back again is grounded in the dynamic tension between the creative/deviant and conventional/established sense-making determinations.  By these experiences our views of the world are both transgressed and confirmed.
