Art and Time
The aim of this congress is to bring together aestheticians, philosophers, cultural theorists, art historians, art critics, literary theorists, musicologists, theorists of visual arts, architecture, and new media, architects, and artists interested in the theme of the congress with the aim of strengthening links and contacts among theorists and philosophers of art and various realms of culture.
It seems that it is time to center on art in relation to the notion of time by investigating the following related subjects:
- Which notion of time concerns contemporary artists?
- Which are the aesthetically and philosophically relevant notions of time in the history of art?
- Are there ways to investigate the notions of time in relation to specific art form?
- Is the old idea of differentiating between time-based arts and space-based arts still applicable?
- What are the positions concerning the notion of time in modern and contemporary trends and schools of art?
- How have artists presented time in different ages?
- How do time of art distribution and its display duration today concern galleries, museums, and artists?
- What is the influence of the internet on the traditional art forms and the media arts in relation to the problem of time?
