By Arthur C. Danto

Publish 12 months note: First released in 1997
------------------------

En alguno de sus textos, Arthur Danto ya había situado el fin del arte exactamente en los años sesenta. Sin embargo, y a pesar de esta afirmación radical, ha continuado efectuando una crítica radical de l. a. naturaleza del arte en nuestro tiempo. Después del fin del arte presenta los angeles primera reformulación a gran escala de esa intuición de Danto y muestra como, tras el eclipse del expresionismo abstracto, el arte se ha desviado irrevocablemente del curso narrativo que Vassari definió para él en el Renacimiento, de modo que lo que debe hacerse es señalar el camino hacia un nuevo tipo de critica que resulte capaz de ayudarnos a entender el arte en esta period posthistórica: un tiempo en el que, por ejemplo, las teorías tradicionales no pueden explicar l. a. diferencia entre una obra de Andy Warhol y el producto comercial en el que se inspira. Se trata, pues, de plasmar una serie de consideraciones, tan rigurosas como amenas, sobre los más relevantes temas estéticos y filosóficos con respecto al arte que, a su vez, reflejan a l. a. perfección el pensamiento de uno de los observadores más atentos de l. a. escena estética genuine. En este libro, pues, se reúnen, entre otras muchas cosas, el pop, el B+arte del puebloB; , el futuro de los museos y los angeles contribución teórica de un hombre como Clement Greenberg -que hace ya mucho tiempo explico el sentido de los angeles modernidad sobre una base critica fundamentada en los angeles estética- para esbozar una nueva historia del arte que va desde los angeles tradición mimética (la concept de que el arte es una fiel representación de los angeles realidad) hasta los manifiestos de los angeles época moderna (en los que el arte se outline como l. a. filosofía del artista). los angeles conclusión es que ya no es posible aplicar las nociones tradicionales de los angeles estética al arte contemporáneo, sino que hay que centrarse en una filosofía de l. a. crítica de arte que pueda arrojar luz con l. a. que quizá sea los angeles característica más sorprendente del arte contemporáneo: que todo es posible. Arthur C. Danto es profesor emérito de Filosofía en l. a. Columbia collage, así como crítico de arte en The state. Entre sus libros se incluyen The Transfiguration of the standard, Embodied Meanings, past the Brillo field, Encounters and Reflections (ganador del Premio Nacional de l. a. Critica en los angeles categoría de ensayo) e Historia y narración: ensayos de filosofía analítica de l. a. historia, este ultimo también publicado por Paidós.
