Guest lecture: Panofsky meets Basquiat: Applying Iconology to Contemporary Art


23.4.2019 klo 17.00 - 19.00
Research Seminar of Art History

Iconology as a branch of the art studies was developed on the basis of old art. But its main provisions could be applied to the new art. We consider such innovations as pop art, Arte Povera, and Fluxus from the point of view of iconology, and define forms and experiments in contemporary art as new pathos formulas.” We are convinced that even in radical art compositional organization, choice of color, depth, or nuance is image making or at least can be interpreted as image form.
