Phenomenon (do do dodo do), or Moving Beyond 2-D

class 3 (sept. 18)


Modern art:  things that manage to distinguish themselves from (mere) objects.

Questions:

  • What happens to Greenbergian definitions of modern art when they are applied to sculpture?
  • How do we define “objecthood” and what is its relationship to works of art?
  • What is the relationship between time and the visual arts? Space?
  • How does vision relate to the other senses?
  • How should we narrate and critique art that appeals to senses other than vision?
