From grand narrative to narrative. Defying art in the culture of liquidity

Karolina Golinowska

Abstract

The main purpose of present doctoral thesis is an attempt to diagnose the consequences of globalization process with reference to contemporary art world. Proposed framing of those complex relations presume that the notion of art practice has been severely transformed, as well as the institutions legitimizing art has changed. The construction of first chapter refers to historical background of the notion of art practice. Its individual parts reconstruct grand narratives of particular representatives of art history. The second part of dissertation concentrates on critic of art history considered as a discipline based on modernist assumptions. It refers to some opinions that were discussed during the eighties. The third part of treatise exposes the reader to the world of western domination. Its individual parts consist of historical stages of conceptualization of dilemmas carefully analysed within postcolonial discourse. Consequently emerging absorption of art of postcolonial countries ultimately destroys any attempt to create homogeneous definition of art. Its quality is then constituted by world market whose increased role suggests the beginning of the times of global art. To this thesis advanced by Belting concerning contemporary art situation refers the last part of present dissertation.
