Maker of product: Dario Giugliano
n° pages: 192
In this essay, that presents a particular new look edition, the author confronts the subject of corporality in art in a strictly philosophical approach, rereading works and writings by artists such as Asger Jorn, Stelio Maria Martini, Mario Persico, Lucio Scaffaro e Jean Tinguely. To these he adds , as exceptional guides, reflections on Leonardo’s “Treatise on Painting” and the Manual on the Apocalypse” by Gioacchino da Fiore. Throughout the first text, through which the commentary runs like a red thread tying all the chapters together, Giugliano deals with the theme of painting in relation to writing; thanks to the second text, instead, the question of the connection of the work of art with its history is defined precisely. In this way , the relationship between art and the theoretical matters of referrals is explained, especially art criticism. The text is addressed to all scholars of philosophy, particularly aesthetics, to the students of these same subjects, as well as those of art academies.
