TOUTE CATEGORISATION DE L’ART NE PEUT PAS SE LIMITER A CE QUI EST PRODUIT MAIS DOIT TOUJOURS ÊTRE RELIÉE À LA FAÇON DONT LES CHOSES POURRAIENT ÊTRE PRODUITES. CAR C’EST LA SAISIE DE CE CHANGEMENT DE FOCALISATION - SUR LA MANIERE DONT ON PRODUIT PLUTÔT QUE SUR CE QUE L’ON VEUT MONTRER - QUI LIBÈRE LE POTENTIEL ÉMANCIPATEUR DE L’ART TOUT EN APPORTANT DE NOUVELLES RÉPONSES À L’ACCUSATION SELON LAQUELLE TOUT ARTISTE NE SERAIT FINALEMENT RIEN DE PLUS QU’UN TRAVAILLEUR INTELLECTUEL COMME UN AUTRE.

INTERNET HAS CHANGED FOR EVER THE STATUS OF THE ARTWORK. CREATIVE COMMUNITIES ARE MAKING THEIR COMEBACK AND ANONYMITY IS NO LONGER A DIRTY WORD. AFTER ALL, HOMER IS ANONYMOUS. WE DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SHAKESPEARE EITHER, AND YET THIS LITTLE MAN FROM STRATFORD-UPON-AVON KNOWS MORE THAN US ABOUT ALMOST EVERYTHING. THE ERA OF THE GREAT "EGO" OF THE GREAT "ME" IS COMING TO AN END RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES. IT IS, MOREOVER, VERY BRIEF. SHAKESPEARE WASN’T AWARE HE WAS SHAKESPEARE. BEETHOVEN WAS AWARE OF BEING BEETHOVEN. YOU MAY STILL BE AWARE OF BEING YOU. BUT ALREADY THE TROPICOOL COMPANY IS CLEARLY NOT AWARE SHE IS THE TROPICOOL COMPANY.

THAT THE NAME OF THE AUTHOR APPEARS IN HIS OR HER WORK, IS NOW, NO DOUBT, IN MANNERS AND ALMOST AN OBLIGATION. THIS OBSERVATION, ALTHOUGH SEEMINGLY BANAL, IS NEVERTHELESS THE ESSENTIAL REASON WHY WORKS OF ART HAVE SUCH A SMALL IMPACT NOW DAYS.

BECAUSE IF AN ART WORK IS GOOD, IT WORTH MORE THAN THE PERSON WHO MADE IT, BEING ITS QUINTESSENCE ; CONSEQUENTLY, AS SOON AS AN AUTHOR BECOMES ACQUAINTED WITHIN THE TITLE OF HIS WORK, THIS QUINTESSENCE IS IRREDEEMABLY DILUTED BY THE VIEWER IN THE PERSONAL AND EVEN INTIMATE ELEMENT, THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THE WORK OF ART BEING THUS MISSED.

THE NOBLEST AMBITION OF THE INTELLECT IS TO NO LONGER APPEAR INDIVIDUALLY.

MODERN ARCHITECTURE AS AN EXPLANATION OF HUMAN SOJOURN.

THE MAJOR MODIFICATION THE TWENTIETH CENTURY HAS BROUGHT TO HUMAN WORLD AS A COLLECTIVE MIND IS THE FOLLOWING ONE : FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF ARCHITECTURE, AESTHETICS AND LAW, THIS CENTURY HAS DEPLOYED EXISTENCE AS A JOURNEY IN SPECIFIC PLACES.

MORE SIMPLY, IT HAS MADE THE HABITAT EXPLICIT.

THE ART OF THE MODERN BUILDING HAS BROKEN DOWN INTO NEW ELEMENTS AND RE-ENTERED THE HOUSE, THIS ADDITION TO NATURE THAT MAKES HUMAN EXISTENCE POSSIBLE. IT HAS TAKEN THE CITY OUT OF THE CENTRE, WHICH FORMERLY ARRANGED THE WORLD IN A CIRCLE AROUND IT, AND RESHAPED IT INTO A NETWORK OF FLOWS AND RAYS.

THE ANALYTICAL “REVOLUTION” THAT CONSTITUTES THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM OF MODERNITY HAS ALSO TAKEN HOLD OF THE ARCHITECTURAL ENVELOPES OF THE HUMAN SPHERE AND, BY ESTABLISHING A FORMAL ALPHABET, HAS PRODUCED A NEW ART OF SYNTHESIS, A MODERN GRAMMAR OF SPECIFIC SPACES PRODUCTION AND A TRANSFORMED SITUATION OF WHAT IS AN EXISTENCE WITHIN ITS ARTIFICIAL ENVIRONMENT.

WE ARE OURSELVES AN AMALGAM OF SO MANY THINGS : THE BOOKS WE HAVE READ, THE MOVIES WE HAVE SEEN, THE TELEVISION SHOWS WE HAVE WATCHED, THE CONVERSATIONS WE HAVE HAD, THE SONGS WE HAVE SUNG, THE LOVES WE HAVE LOVED. IN FACT, WE ARE A CREATION OF SO MANY PEOPLE AND SO MANY IDEAS THAT WE FEEL WE HAVE HAD VERY FEW ORIGINAL THOUGHTS AND IDEAS ; TO THINK THAT ANY OF THESE THINGS WERE ORIGINAL TO US WOULD INDEED BE BLINDLY SELFISH IN OUR OPINION.
