Dwa bałwany rozmawiają o... sztuce
Two Snowmen Talk... about the Art
Languages of publication
The text is an attempt to draw attention on the artificially created and overly publicized „crisis” in contemporary art, and related to this, signaled by art critics and artists, the need to redefine the status of the artist, the characteristics and location of art works, as well as the recipient’s participation in the creative process. The pretext for the discussion was a picture of Norbert Schwontkowski Two artists talk about... and also the opinion of Arthur C. Danto, that „the art will always have something to do, if the artists are content with that.” Imaginary confrontation of artistic views of two discussing snowmen does not lead to clear conclusions, which, perhaps, once again confirms our belief that the art, especially the one that has „something to do,” is better to be created than to argued about.
