Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Medien, Kunst, Musik, word: 1,3, Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg (Lehrstuhl für Soziologie II), Veranstaltung: Pierre Bourdieu im Kontext der Gesellschaftstheorie, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Eine wesentliche kulturelle Leistung neuzeitlicher Kunst besteht darin, dem Begehren, aus der bestehenden in eine andere Welt zu entkommen. Nicht nur Ausdruck zu verleihen, sondern es mehr oder weniger auch wirklich auslebbar zu machen. ‚Künstlerische Freiheit‘ als geflügeltes Wort für alles, was once Kunst darf. Dieses perfect von der Freiheit der Kunst zeigt ihre gesellschaftliche Bedeutung im Grundgesetz der Bundesrepublik. Die Kunst sei frei, so steht es im fünften Artikel geschrieben. Solange nun in der Kunstwelt die Selbstbestimmung als perfect gilt, wird versucht, nach ihr eigenen Gesetzen bestimmte Lebens-, Werk- und Organisationsformen zu schaffen, die overall anders als die übrige Welt zu sein scheinen. Wo das gelang, conflict in der Moderne durch Kunst und nicht mehr durch die faith ein ebenso sinn- und wertvolles wie choices Dasein in der Welt gegeben. Doch ist dieses excellent nicht längst zur phantasm geworden? Gehorcht die Kunstwelt nicht längst dem Primat der Ökonomie, deren Logik sich in alle Bereiche unserer Lebenswelt ausbreitet? Und sind es noch so idealisierte Vorstellungen von einer ardour der Liebe oder von einer Freiheit in der Kunst, werden auch jene Vorstellungen von Handlungsmaxima überlagert oder untergraben, die der rationalen Wahl folgen: Liebe-aber bitte vernünftig! Freiheit - aber zu welchem Preis?
Der vorliegende textual content widmet sich der Frage nach der Autonomie der Kunst. Inwiefern ist Kunst frei? Inwieweit kann von einer selbstbestimmten, zugleich kritischen, provokativen und überraschenden Kunst die Rede sein. Jene anscheinend so verhängnisvolle Affäre zwischen Kunst und Markt wird aus Luhmanns systemtheoretischer Perspektive beleuchtet, um Konsequenzen für eine postulierte Autonomie der Kunst zu erkennen. Hierfür wird zunächst Luhmanns kunstsoziologischer Ansatz im Verhältnis zur Ökonomie dargestellt um hierauf aufbauend eine systemtheoretische Funktion der Kunst zu destillieren. Abschließend wird explizit die Beziehung zwischen Kunst- und Wirtschaftssystem betrachtet, um letztendlich eine Antwort auf die Frage nach der Autonomie in der Kunst zu formulieren. An dieser Stelle sei angemerkt, dass sich Darstellung und representation der Argumentation sich im Wesentlichen auf die bildenden Künste konzentriert.

Tiere in der Kunst (German Edition) by Sarah Suchy PDF

By Sarah Suchy

ISBN-10: 3640364643

ISBN-13: 9783640364640

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Medien, Kunst, Musik, notice: 1,3, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg (Gender Studies), Veranstaltung: Spezielle Soziologie I: Soziologie der Geschlechter. Tierisch Menschlich. Gender in Mensch-Tier Verhältnissen, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Schon seit den frühesten Anfängen der Kultur des Menschen spielen auch Tiere in der Kunst eine große Rolle. Beginnend bei den steinzeitlichen Höhlenmalereien, wie z. B. in der Grotte Chauvet in Vallon Pont d’Arc/Südfrankreich, die ca. 31500 Jahre alt sind, bedienten sich auch die alten Ägypter der Darstellung von Tieren in ihren Hieroglyphen, um sich auszudrücken.
Weiterhin waren Tiere auch noch im Spätmittelalter, der Renaissance, bis hin zum Expressionismus und weit darüber hinaus beliebte Darstellungsobjekte. Beispiele hierfür sind das „Rhinocerus“ von Albrecht Dürer aus dem Jahre 1515 und „Kühe – rot, grün, gelb“ von Franz Marc aus dem Jahre 1912.

Die folgende Referatausarbeitung beschäftigt sich mit einigen der jüngsten Beispiele von Tieren in der Kunst, sowohl mit dem Tier als Kunstobjekt der Moderne und Postmoderne in abgebildeter shape, als auch mit der Kunst mit dem lebenden Tier an sich.
Zu Beginn der Arbeit sollen zusammenfassend einige Merkmale der Moderne und Postmoderne erläutert werden, um das weitere Verstehen zu erleichtern.
Daraufhin wird anhand des Textes „The Postmodern Animal“ von Steve Baker konkret auf drei zeitgenössische Künstler, ihre Ansätze und Werke eingegangen.
Schließlich wird sich mit dem Gedanken beschäftigt, inwieweit es u.a. zu Widersprüchen innerhalb mancher Kunstwerke kommen könnte.
