Anarchy and art : from the Paris Commune to the fall of the Berlin Wall by Allan Antliff ( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the powers of art is its ability to convey the human aspects of political events, ranging from war to revolution to sexual liberation. Art can also transform society, a theme that pervades this fascinating survey on art, artists, and anarchism since the nineteenth century. In numerous essays, Allan Antliff interrogates moments of engagement when artists, poets, philosophers, and critics have confronted pivotal events over the past 140 years. The survey begins with artist Gustave Courbet and writer Emile Zola's activism during the 1871 Paris Commune (which established the modern-day Frenc

Concrete insight : art, the unconscious and transformative spontaneity by Catherine M Nutting ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
My thesis draws connections among Herbert Read's aesthetics, his anarchism, and Carl Jung's aesthetic theory. I discuss Jung's concept of individuation and its importance in his theory of the creative process of life. He distinguished between personalistic and archetypal art, and argued that the latter embodies primordial symbols that are inherently meaningful. Archetypal art, he believed, symbolizes unconscious knowledge, which can promote self-awareness and impact on society, if an individual is able to discern its relevance and integrate this into an ethical lifestyle. Jung emphasized the importance of rational discernment and ethical choices along with free creativity. I show how Read used these Jungian concepts to explain aspects of his aesthetic and political emphasis on freedom. According to Read, art creates reality and as such it is both personally transformative and socially activist: he believed that aesthetics are a mechanism of the natural world, and that art is a unique type of cognition that manifests new forms. Art communicates new versions of reality because perception is holistic, allowing people to perceive both the essence inherent in forms and the relationships among them. Further, I consider Read's belief that cognition and society are both organic, and should be allowed to evolve naturally. Therefore, according to Read, society must be anarchist so that creative freedom and aesthetic consciousness can be adequately supported. Finally, I conclude by highlighting the pivotal role of creative freedom in Jung's and Read's theories of personal and social change. I illustrate that Jung and Read concurred that the unique individual is the site of transformation, living out the organically creative nature of life

Autonomy as a temporary collective experience Anna Halprin's dance-events, Deweyan aesthetics, and the emergence of dialogical art in the Sixties by Tusa Shea ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Focusing on the event-based work of San Francisco dancer and choreographer, Anna Halprin, this dissertation argues that relational art and aesthetics is an integral feature of modernism that can be traced to the emergence of dialogue in art practices of the 1950s and 60s. I argue that John Dewey's pragmatist aesthetics provided Anna Halprin, and other artists in her circle, with a coexistent experiential site for art's conception and production. This alternative aesthetic model was based on an embodied, holistic approach to aesthetic experience that was fundamentally different from the Kantian-based formalism articulated by Clement Greenberg. Uncovering this alternative aesthetic model matters, not only because it is a neglected tradition with contemporary theoretical resonance, but because it allows us to see that event-based art produced during the 1960s was not merely deconstructive; it also had a constructive social purpose, namely the modeling of temporary, non-totalizing communal experiences. I analyze this contingent collectivism through an anarchist lens, in order to demonstrate that anarchic principles and models of agency were enacted and kept operational in art communities, networks, and events and, furthermore, were supported by holistic philosophies grounded in concrete experience

Tektology, Russian Constructivism, and "Man with a Movie Camera" by Melody A MacKenzie ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Constructivists wholeheartedly endorsed the future of Soviet socialism and they took a leading role in shaping proletarian ideology. Drawing on Bogdanov's theories of tektology and proletarian art, the Constructivists synthesized their artistic vision with the proletarian cultural movement. The Constructivists' desire to organize the collective as "worker-organizers" through "production" art was indebted to Bogdanov. In this regard, Constructivist work during the laboratory phase is paramount for understanding the role that Bogdanov's tektology played in the development of Constructivist theory. In 1929, Dziga Vertov produced Man with a Movie Camera, and an analysis of tektological methods used in this film reveal Vertov's ideological motivations. It is on this basis - building ideology - that tektology furnished a viable solution to the Constructivist pursuit of uniting the theoretical and the practical in their art
Breaking the box the alternative, libertarian exhibition spaces created by Rothko & Judd by Stephanie Anne Webb ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
An exhibition space is neither neutral nor universal and meaning is continuallyconstructed within these mediated spaces. My thesis is an examination of two instanceswhere artists have broken outside the box and carefully crafted unique exhibition spaceswithin which an intentional dialogue between art works and viewer, art works and space, content and context is established. It considers two twentieth century artists from theUnited States of America, Mark Rothko and Donald Judd, both of whom rethought andultimately rejected the mediating constraints prevalent in the conventional exhibitionspaces of their time. Seeking to install their work on a permanent basis outside these preexisting, traditional spaces, the alternatives they created -- the Rothko Chapel, Houston, Texas and The Chinati Foundation, Marfa, Texas, respectively -- are predicated, I argue, upon their anarchism and thus the anarchist paradigms of individual autonomy, libertyand non-coercion. In light of their politics, I assess how the core tenet of sovereignty notonly had implications for Rothko and Judd -- for it fuelled the drive to create thesealternative sites -- but that there are also implications for the viewer. More specifically, after an analysis of the sites I reflect upon the consequences for the spectator in terms ofthe following: the co-relation between anti-authoritarian 'open' social systems and the 'open' art experience; the value of directly experiencing anti-representational work; intersubjectivity and the multiplicity of meanings; and last, the temporal nature of the embodied viewing experience
Stella Bloch and the politics of art and dance by Kimberly Dawn Croswell ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This thesis examines the early career and art criticism of Stella Bloch, an artist, dancer and writer who was active in New York City during the World War One era. I focus on Bloch's most important essays from this period: 'Intuitions" (1919) and Dancing and the Drama, East & West (1922). In "Intuitions" Bloch developed a theory of aesthetics based on her study of Nietzsche and Buddhism. Dancing and the Drama, East & West incorporated this theory into the concept of an "ideal drama," which I have analysed as "orientalist." Linking Bloch's anti-colonial "orientalism" to that of her mentor, Ananda Coomaraswamy, I demonstrate that though Bloch's "ideal drama" was an ambitious critique of the social and artistic values of Western culture, it was still caught up in the "orientalist" discourses of the period
