Aesthetics and Philosophies of Art
Art and Culture

This article was motivated by a critic material received from Etienne Boulba (2007), independent art critic, in which was said that the AICA International Congress (Art Critics International Association) that took place in Paris in 2006 showed a crisis in this profession in front of a selection difficulty which only grows, because a displacement is noticed - every time larger - of the aesthetics for the sociology and the anthropology. This last sentence drew attention, because the main idea matches some statements found in the Art Congresses agenda worldwide. The continuous interest is detected in the 20th century art, upcoming for practices and thoughts that seem to surpass their competence. These art concerns would produce constant indefinitions towards their disciplinary view, their group of knowledge, their episteme. What would impel and characterize this way of thinking and acting of art as well as their productions? How can we locate this problem act? Could we suppose that art would not have more specificity? Would the art specifics not have a disciplinary specificity? In the last National Meetings of Plastic Art researchers’ topics were already pointing to this matter and now are intended to displace the center to the implications due to the extent of the visual field in relation to production and research of the multiple study concerns, and this article intends to contribute to this subject.
