The Art of Writting

Maska, vol. XXII, no. 109–110, The Art of Writing (autumn 2007)

The journal you have before you arose from the need to affirm the field of writing for and  about art as a field that, through a principally predominating logic of language, aims to materialize the textures of contemporary art and the questions this places before the viewer. As a form through which intercommunication in a community is established, writing is an important material practice of every social situation and writing for art is not committed only to reflecting certain art practices but also represents the possibility of raising questions and developing a dialogical interaction that arises when one form transforms into another. Writing for and about art is therefore not only a document, but also a realization of mental concepts, a written materialization of thoughts and views that actively cooperate in the shaping of the landscape and meaning of contemporary art.
