Kondycja współczesnego artysty wobec wartości awangardowych
Condition of the Contemporary Artist in the face of the Avant-garde Values
Languages of publication
The book of Grzegorz Sztabiński is a revision of twentieth century artistic avant-garde, in which the author examines crucial ideas of this formation, such as: community, freedom and authority. In perspective of these mentioned problem threads and also taking into account the matter of artist’s status, he attempts to indicate possible identity of this phenomenon, then to designate a split separating it from contemporary times, to finally describe a shift in an actual artistic situation in relation to avant-garde past. Sztabiński distinctly stresses the artist’s condition thread and presents the actual artistic situation by showing irremovable affiliations with avant-garde that proves it is still present and lasts as an archetype, which every present artist inevitably faces up to on many different ways. In the process of pursuing the community, freedom and authority ideas, a strong intention to capture their new functionality for contemporary artists unfolds.
