description

The three authors in this volume place supposed opposites - art and science - side by side and bring them together in a discourse. Hubert Christian Ehalt, Konrad Paul Liessmann and Robert Pfaller lead, each from a different point of view, what art is in science and what is science in art, how inseparable the two are, how they shape each other. This is not surprising, since they were once one - the artes at the medieval universities. Nevertheless, they are in a tense relationship in which art represents the purposeless, the sciences the material, purpose-bound. One thing is clear, however: one cannot exist healthy without the other. The economy is now interfering in this traditional dialogue, which is again making new demands on both disciplines: efficiency and profit - and thus promoting the tendency to put art and science in the service of ubiquitous cultural capitalism.

Hubert Christian Ehalt, science officer for the City of Vienna and coordinator of the Vienna lectures; Professor at the University of Vienna and at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. He has published numerous Viennese lectures at Picus Verlag, including "Analyzes and Evaluations at the Time" (1997), "Art and Culture at the End of the 20th and the Beginning of the 21st Century" (2008, together with Eric J. Hobsbawm) and " Art, Science and Economy in Discourse «(2014, together with Konrad Paul Liessmann and Robert Hubert Pfaller).
