Get Papa Francesco e la missione dell'arte: Il coraggio di PDF

Questo libro nasce da una attenta riflessione dell’autore sull’arte e in particolare sull’arte sacra, in tutte le sue dimensioni; nasce dal suo lavoro ordinario di docente universitario, dalle riflessioni con gli studenti, dalle discussioni con i colleghi, nasce dalla lettura di testi e dalla continua visione di opere, e nasce anche dalla straordinaria partecipazione al XIII Sinodo dei Vescovi come esperto. Il libro si pone in continuità con l’altro quantity - Discorsi sull’arte sacra – pubblicato dallo stesso autore e tuttavia se ne distanzia perché esso vuole essere un contributo più agile, nelle word e nei riferimenti. Il libro vuole anche essere un umile omaggio a Papa Francesco evidenziando l’enorme ricchezza del suo magistero che ha importanti implicazioni nel campo artistico. I primi tre capitoli sono infatti dedicati agli effetti che le parole di Papa Francesco hanno in ambito artistico ed etico.

's Das verfemte Meisterwerk: Schicksalswege moderner Kunst im PDF

ISBN-10: 3050043601

ISBN-13: 9783050043609

Kunstwerke der Moderne und der Avantgarde wurden vom Nationalsozialismus als real Feinde bekämpft. Mit ihrem widerständigen Potenzial und den in ihnen verbildlichten Utopien mussten sie diskreditiert, aus dem öffentlichen Leben verbannt oder vernichtet werden. Das Buch verfolgt daher systematisch die Wege einzelner Kunstwerke im und durch das "Dritte Reich". Dabei werden von der Anprangerung der Gemälde und Skulpturen in den unterschiedlichen Ausstellungen "entarteter" Kunst bis zur sogenannten "Verwertung" auf dem internationalen Kunstmarkt, von der Rettung durch engagierte Museumsleute über Tausch oder Rückkauf durch Künstler und Sammler bis hin zur Zerstörung einiger Werke alle nur denkbaren Biographien der ursprünglich meist aus öffentlichem Besitz stammenden Kunstwerke exemplarisch untersucht. Die Schicksale der juristisch unanfechtbar beschlagnahmten Werke aus deutschen Museen werden dabei ebenso verfolgt wie Beispiele aus privatem Besitz, deren Sequestrierung unlawful erfolgte und durch die jüngste Rechtsprechung in einigen Fällen korrigiert werden konnte. Die Aufsätze nehmen das konkrete Kunstwerk in den Blick, sie beleuchten den propagandistischen Einsatz innerhalb der Aktion "Entartete Kunst" und der in ihrem Zuge verwirklichten Ausstellungsstrategien, detailliert schildern sie die Rezeptionsgeschichte dieser Werke, ihre teils dramatischen und teils bis heute andauernden Provenienzgeschichten und berücksichtigen – wo immer es sinnvoll erschien – die gelegentlich weit vor 1933 einsetzende Verfemung der Werke wie der Künstler. Ausgesprochenes Ziel des Buches soll es dabei sein, im Mosaik der Einzelfälle eine Geschichte nationalsozialistischer Kunstpolitik zu schreiben und zugleich von den Nachkriegsschicksalen der Werke Auskunft zu geben.
