Storia delle terre e dei luoghi leggendari


La nostra immaginazione è popolata da terre e luoghi mai esistiti, dalla capanna dei sette nani alle isole visitate da Gulliver, dal tempio dei Thugs di Salgari all’appartamento di Sherlock Holmes.

Ma in genere si sa che questi luoghi sono nati solo dalla fantasia di un narratore o di un poeta.

Example text

The paradox typical of such a contemporary narrative is that self-organization is also a weapon with which to fight this condition. It is self-organization that offers a whiff of the promise of freedom and suggests an understandable mechanism for creating a difference: A variety of routes have emerged through which self-organization is chosen and accommodated to enhance insight into the constitution of autonomy, difference, and ways of aesthetic operation. Another genealogy for the term is in politics.

54 Life, élan vital, is an ‘immensity of potentiality,’ and these manifold tendencies are actualized in matter and therefore created by such potentialities. Whereas Bergson is seen as one of the fi rst philosophers to protest against ‘noumenal’ thinking, positivism, and the mechanistic lightness of classical physics to fi nd a way through to disregarded questions, such as those of duration and space, Whitehead is one of the fi rst to construct a system that would bridge the gap between science and philosophy following their differentiation in early modernity, building a new philosophy of nature.

The organizational aesthetics of art platforms is a practice and speculation on the forces that build them up and change them, that structure and channel their emergence but also enable them to make themselves available for varied practices, uses, and logics. Art platforms exhibit a capacity to become eventful, to reach a threshold that amplifies the material inhabiting them into forces of brilliance, enabling the transition into a different reality. In such an account, organizational aesthetics does not primarily deal with the process or a body of organization in the arts, nor does it account for new postmodern types of organization in global business and culture.
