One thought on “Art and Fear (Continuum Impacts)

  1. littlemiao

    I really, strongly, and thoroughly disagree with Virilio I won t pretend that I am familiar with all his references or follow every detail of his arguments, but I think I comprehend the general gist of his harangue against contemporary art enough to disagree with him He raises important issues of ethics and aesthetics, which is why I read the book He talks about the violence of twentieth century art, deconstructing and destroying the human form with a violence that he likens to the extermination [...]

  2. Erdem Tasdelen

    A storm in a teacup.Calm down Virilio Calm down and look at contemporary art It s not as unitary and one dimensional as you seem to believe.

  3. Devon

    some interesting bitsbut mostly blahe intro by John Armitage really turned me off so my reading of the actual text probably sufferedoverall the essays come off as a lil behind the times

  4. Valkyrie Vandal

    Incredibly narrow viewpoints that are very right leaning borderline fear mongering His ideas are interesting, but overly excitable Name dropping like an Art Historian This went over my head a few times and I ve studied art history for almost 4 years Oh, and formatting for whatever version I read was atrocious translated by Julie Rose Her preface was exceedingly dry and boring and her translation is both verbose and complicated It seemed like vocabulary words were capslocked It also seemed like a [...]

  5. Grace Suarez

    As others have stated, while Virillo brings up some interesting points about violence in art, I don t necessarily agree with him Auschwitz and WW2 were great tragedies, but say that all violence in art stems from those events also the shattering of humanism, the lowering of ethical values, the suicide rate in the bourgeoise community is a massive leap to make An interesting read regardless.

  6. Ben Walker

    Not an easy book Some incredible ideas, but by the time I mad it to the end I couldn t face going back to figure out what they were.

  7. razonabilidad

    the nazis do not have the last word on the reconceptualization of the human to assume so is to reinforce violence in the name of pity.

  8. Victor

    Interesting argument He apparently did not like the German Expressionist painters and artists, and blamed them the atrocities of World War II.

  9. Nathalie

    Virilio, in this book, compares how art symbolically and science militarily worked in the twentieth century at destroying the human form.
