Философия Стены

Within a culture, which is understood as a complex of prohibitions, the phenomenon of wall is examined as an incarnate prohibition. The role of the wall is probed in a historical aspect, and fragment of wall as substrate in a fine art. Certain locus of walls as crossing of rays of direct and reverse prospects, jointly adopted a positive prospect. On the example of graffiti, the concept of negative prospect is introduced. It had been shown that an integral appearance in a negative prospect disintegrates to pieces. Destruction of image is explained by the influence of wall as an incarnated metaphysical prohibition. So interpreting phenomenon of the wall is the object of apophatic philosophy.
