Idea Code 13232


In considering the relation between culture and society, the notion of artworks as material objects, in particular the habit of thinking of them as such, is a critical point often revisited by those seeking to liberate art from traditional perspectives. The idea that art is a necessary intermediary between the production of objects and our subsequent sense of detachment or loss as they become removed from us is an essential component of the human experience. Claes Entzenberg, Associate Professor of Aesthetics at Uppsala University, here embarks on an intellectual journey to explore this notion of art’s reification in connection with the concepts of life and death.
