Disrupted Horizons: Potential Disclosures of Emergency Aesthetics
DOI: 10.19205/61.21.1
11 – 25
PDF

Słowa kluczowe

Emergency | Aura | Digital Hyperreality | Immanence | politics

Streszczenie

The Covid-19 pandemic determined a radical restructuring of social and political spaces. This change affected artistic production and reception, influencing individual and collec-tive aesthetic experiences. By losing its physical dimension, art has moved to the digital sphere, engaging with alternative possibilities for display and connectivity. This paper examines the spaces unfolded by emergency aesthetics. Alongside reshaping sense per-ception, emergency aesthetics inspires political intervention by disclosing new conceptual frameworks that help us recognize and withstand present social, ethical, and existential crises.

Phenomenology and Ecology: Art, Cities, and Cinema in the Pandemic

PDF

Słowa kluczowe

COVID-19 | Cities | Dystopian Movies | Ecological Psychology | poiesis

Streszczenie

COVID-19 infects cities, here grasped as quasi-living functioning systems, and the changes inflicted can poetically open us to certain things. Drawing on ecological psychology, we maintain that this brings people into contact with different realities depending on their overall wellbeing, arguing that the aesthetic experience of cities accordingly varies. We then consider iterations of these ideas in dystopian cinema, which portrays global threats altering human relations with technology, art, and the world.

Home, Health and Power: Exploring Experiences of and Responses to the Pandemic through the Global @covid19quilt Project
DOI: 10.19205/61.21.3
43 – 68
PDF

Słowa kluczowe

COVID-19 | Pandemic Art | Participatory Art | Digital Quilt | Interdisciplinary

Streszczenie

This article explores the @Covid19Quilt, a global digital participatory art project started by Australian artists Kate Just and Tal Fitzpatrick, designed to gather and share people's experience of the COVID-19 pandemic via craft. Starting with an overview of this continu-ing project, this article applies an interdisciplinary lens to consider the significance of making and sharing during a pandemic. Drawing on a preliminary thematic analysis of the quilt, we discuss three broad motifs that have characterised the project thus far: home, health, and power. In exploring these three themes, the paper highlights the ways in which the @Covid19Quilt project is an important cultural artefact that draws together ‘threads of collective meaning and understanding’ (Ferrell, Hayward, Young 2015, 3) and opens up possibilities for transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary dialogue.

Art is Serious, Life is Serene

Słowa kluczowe

Ludwig Wittgenstein | Leo Tolstoy | Learning from Art | Art and Society | Pandemic Times

Streszczenie

By not being able to surround ourselves with works of art like we used to, we are painfully reminded of how important they are in our lives. In this essay, with the help of the Russian man of letters Leo Tolstoy and the Austrian philosopher of language Ludwig Wittgenstein, we will point out the critical role art plays in human life. In particular, works of art can be helpful in finding a new lifestyle, an appropriate way of living, and open new entrances and perspectives to the world around us.

Search for Stability: Rhythm in the Philosophies of Husserl, Deleuze & Guattari
DOI: 10.19205/61.21.5
81 – 94
PDF

Słowa kluczowe

philosophy | Rhythm | Territory | Horizon | Husserl | Deleuze | Guattari

Streszczenie

During the pandemic situation while the usual order changes and the search for new elements of security become more active, rhythm studies may provide a deeper under-standing of human and ongoing processes. The current study views rhythm as a force of stability in the context of Husserl’s and Deleuze & Guattari’s philosophies. It seeks com-mon substantiation for sociality, humanity, art, and nature, showing the organic connec-tion between a person’s internal constitution and outer environment, the rhythmic cen-tre’s manifestations, and surroundings.

Visceral Resistance and The Vulnerability of Breathing
DOI: 10.19205/61.21.6
95 – 112
PDF

Słowa kluczowe

Vulnerability | Visceral Feminism | Corporeality | Breathing Aesthetics | Contemporary Art

Streszczenie

The COVID-19 pandemic invites us to re-examine the relations between aesthetics and social, environmental, and bodily issues. This essay highlights these interconnections by focusing on the vulnerability of breathing from a visceral point of view. Merging theoreti-cal accounts with investigations of selected artworks by Latvian artists Dace Džeriņa and Rasa Jansone, the aesthetic apprehension of breathing allows for the advancement of feminist politics for a liveable and breathable life and bodily flourishing.

Street Art and the Crisis of Public Space During the Pandemic
DOI: 10.19205/61.21.7
113 – 129
PDF

Słowa kluczowe

Street Art | public space | List [Letter] | Subversiveness | Artivism

Streszczenie

This paper analyzes the negative impacts of the pandemic and related restrictions on public spaces, and the role of street art as one of the tools to counteract them. I claim that the current crises, epidemiological and socioeconomic, create another type of breakdown: the crisis of public space and the reaction to it. Street art is gaining significance as a voice of political dissent against the appropriation of public space.

Drawing the Virus. The Representation of COVID-19 in Italian Comics
DOI: 10.19205/61.21.8
131 – 143
PDF

Słowa kluczowe

Italy | COVID-19 | Comics | Semiotics | media | New Media | Culture

Streszczenie

Through the perspective of Cultural Semiotics, this article aims to show how Italian comic book creators have represented the tragic event of the coronavirus pandemic during the first lockdown (between March and May 2020) imposed by Giuseppe Conte’s government. By analyzing the works produced during this timeframe, we attempt to identify the main ways the pandemic was depicted. We will focus on the representation of time and space, the double status of the virus (as an agent and condition), and creators’ different textual strategies.
