Download for FREE at What makes something "art"? If an object falls under the category of “art,” then you'd suspect it has something in common with other items in this category. Art forms, however, produce strikingly different manifestations of art. For example, sculpture produces three-dimensional art, painting and drawing produce two-dimensional art, and performance art produces a time frame in which the art exists. How do these distinct practices have the possibility of producing creations that are acknowledged as “art?” The Philosophical Functionality of the Tattoo focuses on tattoos, a traditionally unaccepted type of art, to help understand the properties attributed to art. If tattoos are not “art,” why not? If tattoos are “art,” why so? Figuring out these characteristics about tattoos, specifically, contributes to the general ontology of art.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Kunst - Sonstiges, Note: 1,0, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (Kunstgeschichte), Veranstaltung: "Black Art" - im Spannungsfeld von postkolonialer Kritik und Globalisierung, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Eine Ausstellung gilt als Medium, als „Beglaubigungsanordnung oder als Ort der Realitätsproduktion“. Indem Objekte auf eine bestimmte Art und Weise angesammelt, präsentiert und interpretiert werden, werden sie Teil einer Ausstellungssemantik. Jede Ausstellung besitzt somit eine spezifische Rhetorik und bezieht eine Position oder trifft eine Aussage zu zeithistorisch relevanten Thematiken. In der vorliegenden Arbeit soll die Kunstausstellung "The Global Contemporary". Kunstwelten nach 1989 (17.11.2011 bis 05.02.12 im ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe) hinsichtlich der Präsentation und Rezeption von „Black Art“ analysiert werden. Letzterer Begriff bezeichnet die Kunstproduktion aus Afrika stammender oder dort lebender KünstlerInnen und wurde im Rahmen des Black Power Movement geprägt. Demnach wird untersucht, welchem übergeordneten Thema die Ausstellung unterliegt und welche kuratorischen Strategien auszumachen sind, wie und unter welchem Aspekt die Kunst afrikanischer zeitgenössischer KünstlerInnen in diesem thematischen Kontext ausgewählt und präsentiert wurde: Spielt die Diskussion von „Blackness“ noch eine Rolle? Wenn ja, wie wird sie dargestellt, eventuell verkompliziert oder gar dekonstruiert? Wie verbinden sich die Themenfelder „Black Art“ und Globalisierung? Der Fokus liegt hierbei auf den drei Künstlern Meschac Gaba, Moshekwa Langa und Chéri Samba. Im Folgenden soll die Rhetorik der Ausstellung erläutert und aufgezeigt werden, welche Bedeutung den afrikanischen Künstlern zukommt. Ethnologische, kunsttheoretische und kulturwissenschaftliche Texte bilden den theoretischen Kontext für diese Untersuchung.
