Art and Power: Contemporary Figurations

By Idalina Conde, CIES e-Working Paper no.121/2012, ISSN 1647-0893

In this text, the issue of art and power is approached from a perspective that addresses, in particular, the symbolical - essential - power of artists through their ideas as authors. A figuration of interdependencies raises questions about artistic power and its sovereignty and fragilities in the contemporary situation. With images of art works presented by Ai Wei Wei, Sakarin Krue-On and Sanja Ivekovic, presented at the last Documenta 12 in Kassel (2007).
