Framing: samenhang? Derrida Parergon: a supplement that becomes part of it. What is art? Where does it end, where does it begin? Deleuze Rhizome: Principles of connection and heterogeneity: any point of a rhizome can be connected to anything other, and must be. Principle of multiplicity: geen object geen subject, veelheid of multipliciteit moet zelfstandig bekeken worden… als multipliciteit Principle of asignifying rupture: breuk betekent niet, veroorzaakt nieuwe, onverwachte groei. Principle of cartography and decalcomania: a rhizome is not amenable to any structural or generative model.
Culture and Meaning in the Museum Eilean Hooper-Greenhill What is said and how it is said: communicate narrative though the objects are mute, open to interpretation (often contradictory). Thus: pedagogy of display is most important pedagogy, through content and style.
Raymond Williams: What is Culture? A general process of intellectual, spiritual and aesthetic development. The works and practices of intellectual and especially artistic activity. A particular way of life, whether of a people, a period or a group. The signifying system through which necessarily a social order is communicated, reproduced, experienced and explored. NB: Seeing relates to what is known and to what counts as available to be observed. Maurice Merleau-Ponty
Resonance and Wonder Stephen Greenblatt Resonance: the power of the displayed object to reach out beyond its formal boundaries to a larger world. Wonder: power of the displayed object to stop the viewer in his or her tracks, to convey an arresting sense of uniqueness to evoke an exalted attention.
Greenblatt Resonance: niet noodzakelijk binnen het kunstwerk zelf Wonder: type of gaze predomintaly western beweging (Plato en Aristoteles) Conclusie: wonder should lead to the desire of resonance.
