West Coast Reactionaries hosts Gio Pennacchietti on representation in art.
Heidegger presents two views on the subject of modern art, one being that it is rather an anti-art (which we will get to later) and the other being the possibility that it is art. Heidegger states, when talking of abstraction and conceptualism (such as Duchamp’s Urinal), that it is art, but it is not rooted in a particular people, rather it is the product of industrialization, the universalism present in mechanical reproduction, in techno-science, precisely because it is, referring to the works of Kandinsky, “without object.” Furthermore, Heidegger states it “belongs to the world,” no longer producing the world of a people or nation and expressing their exigency for meaning, rather modern art in many ways possesses the same dynamic as enframing and capital do: dominating, subverting, and implementing its universalizing template to uproot the meaning-making of art.
