Play Behind the Mirror
In my article I undertake a problem of relations between art as mirror, play and work in aesthetic thought, than ancient tradition — which is represented by Plato — to contemporary thought, like Bauman’s sociology or Rancierè’s philosophy. I would like to show how “art as mirror” and “art as play” were contrasted which notion of work. A historical situation of art is not clear. Of course in ancient Greek thought an art was described by the techné and mimesis notion. But by the other way Plato was rejected poetry (as some kind of mimetic “art”) form polis, because loss of techné. The same different is appear in postmodern thought, like Rancierè or Bauman. For example Bauman show how “work” begins to looks likeness a “play”, people want to have they consequences/effects right now. When thought about “work” and “play” has changed, the same “work” and the “play” — as human activity — was in itself also changed. Question of aesthetic is following: in what place, between work and play, is now art?
Article is also meant to be some kind of play with a reader. The point of play is to appear this subject in other, not academic way.
