This article starts from the question if art still exists and what function it can still have. In front of contemporary artworks there is a disorientation which is a measure of the detachment between their language and the reality in which they are immersed. Starting from this observation, the theoretical position of Danto builds art’s autonomy, even compared to the aesthetic dimension and perception, which leads to neutralize the explosive potential of the artistic language. For this reason, Danto ignores the Kantian operation directed to identify an important moment for the structuring ethics of the human community in aesthetic sharing. In contrast, Didi-Huberman and Benjamin show us how art is essentially a practice that weaves a plot of elements of reality to upset them and thus bring a critical interrogation in the very heart of the reality of ethical relations in which it arose.

Abstract

This article starts from the question if art still exists and what function it can still have. In front of contemporary artworks there is a disorientation which is a measure of the detachment between their language and the reality in which they are immersed. Starting from this observation, the theoretical position of Danto builds art’s autonomy, even compared to the aesthetic dimension and perception, which leads to neutralize the explosive potential of the artistic language. For this reason, Danto ignores the Kantian operation directed to identify an important moment for the structuring ethics of the human community in aesthetic sharing. In contrast, Didi-Huberman and Benjamin show us how art is essentially a practice that weaves a plot of elements of reality to upset them and thus bring a critical interrogation in the very heart of the reality of ethical relations in which it arose.
