Kunstgeschichte Podcast in Englisch: „The Braid Model of Art History“

The new Dr Great Podcast, Episode 47 „The Braid Model of Art History.“ The future art might is not posthistorical, but rather polyhistorical, plurogenic (multistrand), not monogenic (single strand). There are various models and/or master narratives of art history, from the immensely limited discussion of the traditional narrow canon to timorous avoidance of any timeline due to postmodern guilt, treating artworks as mere stand-ins for particular ideologies. The late art critic John Perreault and I have created a new, more transparent model: the Braid, or Braided Rope. See additional content for an image of the Braid Model.

Kunstgeschichte Podcast in Englisch: Color in Art

The New Dr Great Art Podcast. Episode 46: Color in Art. Some scattered reflections on the complex role of color in art including several things that bother me regularly in purportedly theoretical discussions of it. Color is wonderful, and necessary, but it is a happily difficult entity for theory.

Kunstgeschichte und Theorie in Englisch: Podcast

The newest Dr Great Art Podcast. Episode 44: Mikhail Bakhtin, Dialogic Form and Metaphor
Meaningful Escape from Endless Oscillation between Dead Abstractions
Bakhtinian notions which could serve as great inspiration for visual art include his sense of the living fluidity of expression; his concepts of heteroglossia, polyphonic form, and dialogic form; his insight that these may engender the liberation of alternative voices; and his presentation of the carnival as a suggestive metaphor.

Kunstschichten Podcast Auf Englisch: Neo-Conceptualism, the Term

The newest Dr Great Art podcast, Episode 43. Neo-Conceptualism, the Term
This episode’s artecdote clarifies the historical terminology for the dominant Postmodernist art movement since circa 1985: ‚Neo-Conceptualism.‘ Neo-Conceptualists themselves generally try to refer to themselves with the earlier term as ‚Conceptualists,‘ but this is a political ploy, an ahistorical part of a powerplay, pretending that they are a part of the movement form which they derive.

Kunstgeschichte Podcast auf Englisch: Defining Visual Metaphor

The new Dr Great Art Podcast. Episode 42: Defining Visual Metaphor. Images can be Tropaic, Not Just Words. This episode, I give my definition of visual metaphor. This is a new area of scholarly interest, and there have been few attempts to clearly describe visual metaphor or trope. This is an important foundational action and idea for the book on visual metaphor and contemporary art I am in the process of writing

Kunstgeschichte Podcast auf Englisch: Lawrence Weiner, Conceptual Art, and Metaphor

The new Dr Great Art Podcast. Episode 41: Lawrence Weiner, Conceptual Art, and Metaphor
Conceptual Artist Lawrence Weiner is quite fond of formulating statements in which he claims to have dismissed metaphor from his artwork. He is completely wrong. No matter what is claimed, Lawrence Weiner’s art, and most Conceptual Art and Neo-Conceptual Art, whether good or bad, is deeply grounded in interlocking base metaphors; metaphors commonly ignored because they are so transparent.
