Aesthetic Ecologies: Air and the Space of Art around 1900 EP205

February 20 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Ingrid Christian (Germanic Studies, Univ. of Chicago)

This talk explores air as the material space surrounding an artwork – its “Milieu,” “Umgebung” and “Umwelt.” It takes as its starting point evocations of air within and without an artwork, thus, evocations that cut across the separate realms of reference between artwork as image and as material object. The talk examines artworks that “overspill their form” and become continuous with the space environing them, in order to ask: What would an intellectual history of the environment look like when told from the perspective of the literature of art history?
