important not to explain pictures by texts but to differentiate them from texts Nevertheless it seems equally important to develop common standards or methodological devices which are relevant for the interpretation of texts as well as for the interpretation of pictures Examples of common standards are to treat the text as well as the picture as a self-referential system to differentiate between explicit and implicit atheoretical knowledge to change the analytic stance from the question What to the question How to reconstruct the formal structures of texts as well as pictures in order to integrate single elements into the over-all context and mdash last but not least mdash to use comparative analysis The application or realization of these common standards and methodological devices in the field of the interpretation of pictures however has to be quite different from that of the interpretation of texts if we intend to advance to iconicity as a self-contained domain to its inherent laws and to its autonomy independent from texts Ralf Bohnsack 2008 Volume 9 No 3 Art 26 ndash September 2008 Forum Qualitative Sozialforschung Forum Qualitative Social Research Sun, 08 Oct

on color that will be the essence the content and the form but also the line of a new painting for a non ndash figurative art Influenced by the Fauvism she first presents works whose subjects and models are marked slashed by the brutality of the shades Creative perfection to aim at the music offers to the artists at this time the philosophical assessment that will underlie their respective works Powerful associations of rhythms and melodies the compositions gather in the idea of simultaneous what makes a new challenge for poets and painters Sonia Delaunay then progressively develops a lyrical use and signification of the color close from cubism between rhythm and shade Repetitions of forms structures but also colors her paintings take a direction all her artistic propositions will follow Ozarts Etc 3 December 2011 Tue, 13 Aug 2013 20:33:28 +1000 When Is Now The Historical Present in Creative Practice Thursday 27th June 2013 10 00am ndash 4 30pm Waterside 2 The Watershed Bristol UK This one ndash day symposium explores the historical present in creative practice In a cultural climate that valorizes the now what does it mean to occupy the present moment Our aim is to examine the present tense of creative practice as itself historical as opposed to understanding it as the end point of a linear chronological line The symposium is motivated by a desire to pay attention to the atmospheric thickness of the present tense in art media and design practices and to imagine what kinds of experience can be articulated when what Lauren Berlant calls the ongoingness of life is slowed down and brought into visibility The symposium includes papers on the historical present in relation to painting sound photography film digital media and video Thu, 30 May 2013 10:21:47 +1000
