New Ontologies of Art

University of Warsaw

14th - 16th December, 2016

 

Keynote speakers:

Tiziana Andina (University of Turin)

Arto Haapala (University of Helsinki)

Jason Gaiger (University of Oxford)

  

The aim of this conference is to shed light on the role of ontology in contemporary aesthetics and the philosophy of art. Ontology of art is flourishing, with a plethora of papers appearing each year dedicated to this area. It is commonly believed that ontology of art is the main field in aesthetics. This is not surprising since many (if not all) aesthetic questions presuppose some level of ontological inquiry. On the other hand, lasting achievements in this area have proved elusive. The artworld constantly brings forth new art objects and practices that undermine established ontological categories and concepts. This indisputable fact is a trigger for new investigations within and beyond traditionally understood ontology of art. We warmly invite papers that reconsider the value and methods of ontology of art – broadly understood – by exploring new concepts and fields of inquiry.

 

No specific methodology or philosophical orientation is required in submissions.

 

Suggested topics/questions:

 

Do we (still) need ontology of art?

How can ontology of art help in understanding or experiencing artworks?

New concepts and/or methods in ontology of art.

The ontology of emerging art forms.

The descriptivism/revisionism debate in ontology of art.

Ontology of art influenced by other disciplines such as law or science.
