"Kant, Art, and Art History: Moments of Discipline is the first systematic study of Immanuel Kant's reception in and influence on the visual arts and art history. Working against Kant's transcendental approach to aesthetic judgment, Cheetham examines five "moments" of his influence, including the use of his political writings by German-speaking artists and critics in Rome around 1800, the canonized patterns of Kant's reception in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century art history, particularly in the work of Wolfflin and Panofsky, and Kantian language in the criticism of cubism. Cheetham also reassesses Clement Greenberg's famous reliance on Kant. The final chapter focuses on Kant's "image" in both contemporary and posthumous portraits and examines his status as the personification of philosophy within a disciplinary hierarchy. In Cheetham's reading, Kant emerges as a figure who has constantly defined and crossed the borders among art, its history, and philosophy."--Jacket
Abstract art against autonomy : infection, resistance, and cure since the 60s by Mark A Cheetham( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Abstract Art Against Autonomy, Mark Cheetham provides a revolutionary account of abstraction in the visual arts since the decline of the formalist paradigms in the 1960s. He claims that abstract work remains a vital contributor to contemporary visual culture, but that it performs in a way that is different from its predecessors of the early and mid-twentieth century and cannot adequately be assessed without new models of understanding. Cheetham posits that abstraction has reacted to paradigms of purity with practices of impurity. By examining abstract art since the 1960s within a narrative of infection, resistance, and cure, Cheetham provides an opportunity to rethink paradigmatic genres - the monochrome and the mirror - and to link in new ways the work of artists whose work extends and complicates the tradition of abstract art, including Yves Klein, Robert Rauschenberg, James Turrell, Gerhard Richter, Peter Halley. General Idea, and Taras Polataiko."--Publisher's website
