Kunstgeschichte Podcast auf Englisch. Dr GReat Art, Julia Kristeva, Metaphor as Resistance

The new Dr Great Art Podcast, Episode 52: Julia Kristeva, Metaphor as Resistance. Julia Kristeva, the a Bulgarian-French philosopher, offers in her theorization hope for resistance against ruling ideologies within artworks themselves. Artists can produce „openings“ by creating metaphors through serious play, turning rules upside down, displaying pleasure, laughter and poetry which include thoughtful critique — delightful, anarchistic, alternative visions that are embodiments of and empower other forms of resistance.

Kunstgeschichte Podcast in Englisch: Bluesman of Art

The newest Dr Great Art podcast episode,
Nr. 51: Bluesman of Art
Dr Cornel West has described himself as a „Bluesman in the life of the mind, and a Jazzman in the world of ideas.“ I feel similarly, I am a Bluesman of the mind, a Rock n Roller of painting and installations, a sequential-artist/comic-book penciler of art history.

Aus Diamant wird Bleistift

Was haben ein Diamant und ein Bleistift gemeinsam? Sie bestehen aus dem gleichen Stoff –  aus Kohlenstoff. Demnach lässt sich also aus einem Diamanten (oder besser gesagt aus mehreren Diamanten) ein Bleistift herstellen.

Genau das hat sich nun Thomas Stüssi, Lehrgangsleiter HF Bildende Kunst an der Schule für Gestaltung am GBS St.Gallen, zum Projekt gemacht. Zusammen mit einem Kollegen machte er sich vor wenigen Tagen auf in die USA, um dort nach Diamanten zu graben. Rund einen Monat lang sind die beiden unterwegs.

Auf seinem Instagram-Profil @thestuessi lässt Thomas Stüssi uns an seinem besonderen Vorhaben Teil haben.

Save the date: Pünktlich zum Infoanlass über den Lehrgang HF Bildende Kunst ist der Abenteurer wieder zurück in der Heimat und hat wohl viel Spannendes zu erzählen – Am Mittwoch, 22. Mai, um 19 Uhr, Schule für Gestaltung am GBS St.Gallen, Demutstrasse 115.

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.
