in 2008, the MARLER KUNSTSTERN, a cultural major event took place for the first time. Because of its diversity, the exhibition attracted overregional attention. Today the MARLER KUNSTSTERN is one of the largest interdisciplinary exhibitions of the free art scene in Germany.
The exhibition is open to contemporary artists, who work with painting, sculpture, drawing, original graphicworks, photography, digital art, and other disciplines. The artistic quality of the exhibition proposals are rated by a Selection Committee appointed by Art Fair Málaga ’17.
The Art Fair Málaga is the second largest international art fair in Spain.
It is best described as an international meeting place for galleries, independent aspiring artists and collectors. In more than 6,000 square meters of exhibition space, a total of 400 artists and 50 galleries present their works at the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos.
It was the beginning of art as we experience it today
Shiner cites examples from a wide range of forms, including Shakespeare’s plays, Greek drama, Cellini’s sculptures and Michelangelo’s paintings. He also discusses Asian art, pointing out how “the Japanese language had no collective noun for `art’ in our sense until the nineteenth century”.
He establishes that the phrase “Chinese art” is also a relatively recent invention, since before the 19th century no one in China “grouped painting, sculpture, ceramics, and calligraphy together as objects” with something determinate in common.
University of Illinois philosophy professor Shiner spent over a decade honing what he calls a “brief history of the idea of art.” This carefully prepared and given the extent and complexity of what he is discussing admirably concise, well-organized book is the result.
Looking forward as much as backward, Shiner finds
that “the category of fine art is a recent historical construction that could disappear in its turn.”
