Library Shelf Location 03.HEGY
Publication Date 2004
Description The essays gathered in this book are the result of an historical-anthropological observation: after the crisis in narration, carefully analyzed in the past by Fran├žois Lyotard, we confront ourselves today with the tendency, in contemporary artistic creation characterized by expression, of discourse re-invention efforts . In fact, artists, through their work, concentrate on the real experience of their own personal history--contextualizing it in historical, cultural, and social situations. All the examples presented in this book are the product of an anthropological outlook on man and raise the reader's awareness of the micro-community experiences that are nothing but the reflection of micro-utopias born from the absence of the great teleological utopias.
