“ART HISTORY REVISITED”

www.textezurkunst.de

 

Titled “Art History Revisited”, issue 85 of “Texte zur Kunst” is dedicated to art historiography. This is now the third time that the magazine seeks to shed light on the methods and principles of this humane discipline, the discourses of which form its crucial foundation. While the 1994 issue under the heading “Art History Under Construction” put the import of theories from the Anglo-American countries to Germany up for debate, an issue from 2006 was concerned with reflecting on the state of affairs of a discipline that at the time was extremely influenced by visual studies and an increasing enthusiasm for “contemporary art”. The current issue, in contrast, focuses on the norms to which historiography is subjected and the effects produced by its view to the past. In seven essays, common art-historical paradigms are called into question and examined a new perspective. Established academic notions are revised on the one hand; while selected themes are taken up to elucidate the principles of knowledge and theory production on the other. As with any form of historicization, the history of art is also a constantly changing, identity-forging process. In this light, the contributions compiled here can be read as proposals for a different construction of the past extending to the present.

Plus reviews from New York, Chicago, Berlin, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Frankfurt/M., Paris, Innsbruck, Amsterdam, and Antwerp.

Exclusive new artists’ editions:
