Heideggers Philosophie der Kunst im Lichte gegenwärtiger Ästhetik und Bildtheorie
This article identifies and discusses two basic prerequisites for the fruitful interpretation and reception of Heidegger’s art philosophy. The First is the reconstruction and analysis of the role, which the problematic of art played in the theoretical genesis of so-called “turn” (die „Kehre“, in German) in Heidegger’s philosophical pathway that took place in the 1930s. The second prerequisite is a successful integration of Heidegger’s ideas to the nature of art into the contemporary discussions around the notion of the aesthetic, its changing boundaries and functions. The article focuses on epistemological, spatial, and material aspects of Heidegger’s conception of art, which are especially of interest in the context of contemporary aesthetic theory, whose sphere of competence ranges from the region of art to the variety of aesthetic experiences in everyday life.
