“How, under the condition of radical ambiguity, can a work of art be political?” In Art and Music: Past, Present and Future Perspectives, the authors begin by arguing that this question only yields a satisfying answer if we look at contextual conditions, both of production and of reception. Using the case of street-art, the central claim of the opening chapter is that risk can be framed as one central, distinctive fault line.
After some general remarks concerning morphogenesis and Darwinism, the following chapter considers the transition from biological morphogenesis to semiogenesis, the impact if individuation and the relevance of tradigenetic and ratiogenetic processes. The morphogenesis of basic cognitive schemata enabling the formation of sentences is also described.
Next, the authors explore the characteristics of Korean artists’ cultural practices in the context of globalization in which the influences of global capitalism dominate. This book aims to interpret artists’ concern with universality in art, the most significant priority for Korean artists who live both within and outside Korea, employing French philosopher Deleuze’s theories.
Focusing predominantly on women illustrators beyond Eyvind Earle’s iconic 1959 work on the Disney film Sleeping Beauty, the authors also examine key artistic representations of Sleeping Beauty stories, comparing and contrasting elements of gender, culture, and aesthetics. Given the context of Sleeping Beauty as children’s literature, the authors also take into account art education considerations of her representation through the ages.
In the final chapter, the authors present a literature review on musical performance anxiety in singers, their teacher’s self-perception and their own in the different phases of their formation. The main signs and symptoms characteristic of musical performance anxiety and the possible implications to the voice during musical performance, including its treatment, are also addressed.
