Art and its Shadow is a rare research of the country and that means of up to date paintings and movie. Ranging around the paintings of Andy Warhol, cyberpunk, Wim Wenders, Derek Jarman, considering on distinction and the potential of a philosophical cinema, Mario Perniola examines the newest and most annoying traits in art.Perniola explores how artwork - particularly in posthumanism, psychotic realism and severe artwork - keeps to outlive regardless of the hype of the paintings industry and the realm of mass communique and copy. He argues that the which means of paintings within the glossy international not lies in aesthetic price (above the paintings work), nor in renowned style (below the artwork work), yet beside the art, within the shadow created through either the paintings institution and the area of mass communications. during this shadow is what's disregarded of account through either industry and mass media: the trouble of paintings, an information which may by no means be absolutely printed, and a brand new aesthetic future.
