Art on the Margins

  • Violeta Nikolovska


In this article we are going to ask the following questions: What is art? Who doesit belong to? By defining art as a way of life we will also connect it with culture whileunderstanding culture in its fundamental meaning contained in the etymology of thisword – as neatness, cultivation. The next question – to whom art belongs, will enableus to make a distinction between art available to everyone, art that can be qualified asart on the margins, and art that is under the auspices of institutions. This distinction,of course, is not entirely strict and carries a sequence of overlaps, but leads us to theinsight into the possibilities offered by new technology and which make art availablefor everyone. We will also look at some examples of intermediality in modern timeart. The wide availability of art today redefines roles: consumer of art, author, critic.Simultaneously, the consumer is required to be a critic as well, and author may appearin all the three roles.
