Free Lecture

The Status of the Artist


Speaker: Miha Sarani

Description: The lecture looks at the way the ideas of the artist, the artwork and the art public changed from the Renaissance to the 20th century. We will attempt to grasp the fundamental tension in the discipline of art history between art both as an archaeological object of study and art as autonomous or self-sufficient—that is separate from its historical context. Hopefully we will come to understand the history of art not just as a sequence of different interpretations of single art objects, but as an attempt to understand the relationship between the specific qualities of an art work and a larger conception of art—of what art means in a particular time and place—through the comparison of the different periods and cultures.
