The Lighted Space Of Recognition

Both Hegelian and the Heideggerian models understand art as a situation, a predicament, a “clearing,” within which the self approaches itself from out of the darkness of misrecognition into the “lighted space” of recognition. This understanding of art refuses Kant’s injunction that art be purposeless and disinterested, recognizing instead that, at the point of production, the purposiveness of art is not without purpose, the purpose being its own becoming as a work.
