Kunstgeschichte Podcast, die Malerei und die Romane in Englisch

The newest Dr Great Art Podcast. Episode 36: Paintings and Novels are Quintessentially Antithetical.

Paintings and novels, far from being hidebound, as is often squawked, are quintessentially antithetical: excellent disciplines for new metaphoric thought. They are ideally adversarial. They incorporate, use and criticize. They have achieved a condition of being perpetually „genres undermined.“ They have been in a permanent state of crisis for a minimum of several hundred years. What more could one ask for as a difficult, challenging and rewarding fray?

Kunstgeschichte Podcast in Englisch: Models are Not Master Narratives

The new Episode 27: an explanation of my assertion that art history models are not necessarily master narratives. Art History is often told in versions of one linear story, thus a master narrative. This often delimits thought, sustains oppressive systems and purports to be the truth, allowing no exceptions. On the other hand, the stringent fear of modeling has sometimes lead the less inventive to fall into the simple nihilism of „I give up.“ In fact, models are important dialogical tools of and for thought.
