Abstract

Con este libro se hace justicia al propio Plutarco, tan sensible a las bellas artes en sus descripciones y en sus reflexiones y, además, se les abren nuevas perspectivas a los futuros filólogos. Aproximaciones iconográficas a la obra de Plutarco del estilo de la que presentamos aquí llenan de ilusión a cuantos nos empeñamos en sembrar de cultura clásica una sociedad tan necesitada de ella como es la de nuestra burguesía alejandrina del siglo XXI. Puedo asegurar que Luisa, Paulo y Nuno han sido capaces de transmitirnos esa ilusión.

Abstract

This necessary and thought-provoking study brings together the organisational side of the world of the arts and the understanding of the many functions art fulfi lls in our culture. The author sets out to establish how the organisation of art worlds serves the functioning of the arts in society. The book is divided into three sections, the first of which presents a comparative study of approaches to the art world as practiced by Dickie, Becker, Bourdieu, Heinich, and Luhmann, among others. The second part focuses on the philosphical debates concerning 'aesthetic experience'. Besides Kant, scholars such as Gadamer, Foster, Shustermann, Schaeffer and Carroll come to the fore. In the third part, the author traces the consequences of these theoretical approaches for the organization of art world practices.

Abstract

De l’architecture aux arts décoratifs et de la peinture au théâtre, ce recueil de textes traite d’œuvres dialoguant avec le patrimoine égyptien dans toutes ses composantes. La notion « d’égyptianisme » se trouve ainsi examinée dans la plus large variété de ses acceptions artistiques, architecturales et critiques, dans le monde occidental comme en Égypte. Les textes révèlent un historicisme artistique de veine égyptienne qui ne se cantonnerait ni à la référence antique, ni au monde occidental : nombreux sont les peintres, les sculpteurs, les cinéastes, les architectes… d’Égypte à avoir intégré des représentations du passé national – pharaonique, copte, médiéval, ottoman, et désormais khédivial ou nassérien – dans leur pratique artistique. À l’encontre de l’image habituelle de l’Égyptomanie, c’est un panorama plus riche et plus diversifié qui prend corps ici à travers divers médias et contextes nationaux. Le présent recueil trouve sa source dans un colloque international organisé à la faveur de la venue à Paris de l’exposition « Le théorème de Néfertiti : itinéraire de l’œuvre d’art, la création des icônes » présentée à l’Institut du monde arabe en 2013. Ce colloque s’est tenu les 26 et 27 juin 2013 en partenariat avec Mathaf : Arab Museum of Modern Art (Doha) sous l’intitulé « L’Égypte en ses miroirs ; art, architecture et critique, à demeure et au-delà (XIXe-XXe siècles) ».

Abstract

In this challenging and erudite philosophical essay, the author argues that in art, belief in progress is still relevant, if not essential. The radical freedoms of postmodernism have had a crippling effect on art - more than ever before, art is in danger of becoming meaningless. Art can only acquire meaning through context, and the concept of progress is ideal as the primary criterion for establishing that context. History of art can be seen as a process of constant accumulation. Works of art comment on each other, enriching each other's meanings. These complex interrelationships lead to progress in both the sensibility of the observer and the significance of the works of art.

Abstract

Most artists earn very little. Nevertheless, there is no shortage of aspiring young artists. Do they give to the arts willingly or unknowingly? Governments and other institutions also give to the arts, to raise the low incomes. But their support is ineffective: subsidies only increase the artists' poverty. The economy of the arts is exceptional. Although the arts operate successfully in the marketplace, their natural affinity is with gift-giving, rather than with commercial exchange. People believe that artists are selflessly dedicated to art, that price does not reflect quality, and that the arts are free. But is it true? This unconventional multidisciplinary analysis explains the exceptional economy of the arts. Insightful illustrations from the practice of a visual artist support the analysis.

Abstract

In recent decades, the importance of sound for remembering the past and for creating a sense of belonging has been increasingly acknowledged. We keep "sound souvenirs" such as cassette tapes and long play albums in our attics because we want to be able to recreate the music and everyday sounds we once cherished. Artists and ordinary listeners deploy the newest digital audio technologies to recycle past sounds into present tunes. Sound and memory are inextricably intertwined, not just through the commercially exploited nostalgia on oldies radio stations, but through the exchange of valued songs by means of pristine recordings and cultural practices such as collecting, archiving and listing. This book explores several types of cultural practices involving the remembrance and restoration of past sounds. At the same time, it theorizes the cultural meaning of collecting, recycling, reciting, and remembering sound and music.
