Theoretical Seminar & Critical Meeting
Vizualiųjų menų ir dizaino magistrantams ir meno doktorantams

Spalio 13 d., 13 val. Malūnų g. 3 (VDA C1), 102 aud.

Su Danijos Karališkosios Akademijos profesoriumi, meno teorijos ir istorijos dėstytoju doc. Jan Bäcklund.


Doc. Jan Bäcklund, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts dėsto meno teoriją ir meno istoriją. Docentas nagrinėja paradoksus susijusius su „readymade“ koncepcija; meno klastojimo filosofines implikacijas ir kaip klastojimas veikia meno istoriją; sudėtingą nuo modernizmo kintantį įvaizdžio ir indekso santykį.

Nuo 2011 Jan Bäcklund kelia „neapibrėžtosios praeities“ ir „tobulosios ateities“ klausimus, atsižvelgdamas į dabartinę meno istorijos krizę. Su šia tema ir bus susijusi Theoretical Seminars & Critical Meetings svečio paskaita. 


"The background for this talk is the no longer operating logic of the avantgarde (and thus of art). With modernism and the avantgarde, art operated from the view-point of an already perfective future (utopia, the end of art, the last painting etc.). This meant that the meaning of any art work, was to transgress always closer to this end, and by this narrative we could decide which works were important (compossible with this narrative) and which were irrelevant (incompossible with this narrative). With the advent of 'contemporary art' (1964/1973), but not really recognizable until rather recently, it has become clear that this logic is no longer operating. The future of art has become contingent. This talk will try to explore what the question of the shape of the future implies for the art work and art history -- a kind of "art epistemology" (What does art know? What does the art-work know?). The case in point will be Walid Raad's recent performance-installation Scratching On Things I Might Disavow (2007) and a lesson to be learned from paleolithic cave paintings (40,000–10,000 B.C.)."
