What is Art?

“A kind of representation that is purposive in itself and, though without an end, nevertheless promotes the cultivation of the mental powers for sociable communication.”

Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment, 1790


“A work of art is an artifact of a kind created to be presented to an artworld public.

An artist is a person who participates with understanding in the making of a work of art.

A public is a set of persons the members of which are prepared in some degree to understand an object which is presented to them.

The artworld is the totality of all artworld systems.

An artworld system is a framework for the presentation of a work of art by an artist to an artworld public.”

The institutional Theory of Art,1969 -1997, George Dickie.
