O związkach sztuki i medycyny
On the Relationship of Art and Medicine
Languages of publication
The fundamental questions of the article are: What results from the relationship of art and medicine? What is the subject of ‘medical art’, and what are its features? Three aspects ‒ historical-technical, artistic, and philosophical ‒ are discussed in the three parts of the text. The second is important, because it specifically concerns the art of the twentieth century. Art related to medicine reveals a new dimension of existential problems. Corporeality, disease, and suffering are still taboo in Western culture. The artist is a therapist who reveals and tames, provokes disgust and curiosity. He is also a patient who suffers and shares his pain, who fears and tames the inevitable.
