Blint angrepp på modernismen
2011 (Swedish)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The article is a main review in the Swedish daily morning paper Dagens Nyheter October 15 2011, of an anthology arguing for a revisionist stance in art. The anthology proposes Academic realism and the use of classical paradigms and it criticizes Modernism (and its present day "aftermath") indiscriminately. The review is a strong criticism of the standpoints of the anthology, not least ideas presented in it by the British philosopher Roger Scruton. The review contests Scrutons metaphysical aestheticism and his choice of canonic masters as well as his tendency to speak for "humanity" and naturally based values in art. The review defends art as a relational challenge demanding attention and a sense of dialogue, instead of claims of metaphysically founded objective values.
