What not is Art?greenspun.com : LUSENET : What is ART? : One Thread
For the question "What is Art" we can find millions of answers... Art - like a concept - is something not to define, and to define making the simple question: What is Art?
I don't want to know what is Art ...some formalists and structuralist individuals have their own definitions about Art, and about what is not ... Foucault found in "Las Meninas" of Velazques, the subject of the historical relation between Art and Language. Consequently between Art and Human being. But what is not Art I couldn't find in that sugestive text.
What not is Art? What we can say about Art, and how we can define the paradoxical definition of what was defined.
