These permutations of the resemblance-representation theme originate in the, chapter, where Tanke rehearses Foucault's description of the relation between the Renaissance and Classical epistemes. highlights a fraught relation between resemblance and representation that will appear repeatedly over the course of Tanke's study: from the self-referential materiality of Manet's, (Chapter Two) to the non-referential similitudes found in the visual-linguistic paintings of Magritte, Klee, and Kandinsky (Chapter Three) to the self-replicating release of the image in Warhol's Campbell soup cans, Fromanger's, -events, or Michals's serial photographic narratives (Chapter Three) to the Cynical "anti-Platonism of modern art" (182) as an ethics of living (Chapter Five). We have written a lot about Las Meninas of Picasso in the digital spaces. "We have pictures not simply of what things looked like, but how things were made visible, how things were given to be seen, how things were shown to knowledge and power ." Joseph J. Tanke, Foucault's Philosophy of Art: A Genealogy of Modernity, Continuum, 2009, 222pp., $34.95 (pbk), ISBN 9781847064851. Something odd happens here in Tanke's study regarding the relation between art and knowledge after the toppling of representation. El espejo no dice nada de lo que ya se haya dicho, sino que aporta nueva información acerca de la escena, muestra lo que está mas allá de nuestra mirada como espectadores, se dirige a lo que es invisible tanto por la estructura del cuadro como por su existencia como pintura. Epistemología y pintura: Las meninas, de Foucault Ricardo García Valdez * A Helí, persecutor de la verdad en la violencia del tiempo. し、観賞者と絵の登場人物との間にぼんやりした関係を創造する。 Tanke might well respond to both my questions about what is at stake in the modernity of art by repeating what he asserts in the book: for Foucault, the temporal epoch we call modernity is not only a chronological concept but also "an ethos or attitude: it is a relationship with one's present that allows for that present to be punctured, rendered alien, and subject to philosophical analysis" (2). To be sure, Foucault is a thinker of paradox, and it is entirely possible that these contradictory assertions might be explained within a paradigm that embraces paradox. En un primer apartado se . "Las Meninas" de Velázquez es un cuadro que aparece con frecuencia en las reflexiones de la filosofía. Schroeter's films, for example, make "images pass" and are "thus ethical" (150). painting by moving away from a representational aesthetic.

Clearly not, since Tanke repeatedly characterizes modern art as a rupturing force in the present. Less explicit in Tanke's analysis is how the parallel relations between art-as-resemblance and knowledge-as-representation become reconfigured beyond the Classical age of representation. Reframing genealogy as a "visual practice" (6) that articulates a "dissociating view" (7), Tanke thus rewrites both the story of Foucault and the story of modern art. Second, what is the relation between art and knowledge, especially in the post-representational age? Tanke repeatedly describes this freedom as a force, in history: Rebeyrolle's canvasses "dig into painting's representative capacity to unearth a play of forces" (90); similarly, Michals "overturns the conventions of photography by reaching into history to unearth alternative strategies" (153); and Foucault himself, in his lectures on the Cynics, "unearths an alternative path out of the ancient period" (169). On the first point: what is the relation between resemblance and representation? Such a reading, however, would miss the uniquely archeological frame Tanke brings to his analysis. Tanke makes this point explicit: With man's arrival on the scene of Western knowledge, painting itself embodies the positivities that characterize the modern episteme… . Las Weaving together Foucault's disparate writings, interviews, and lectures on visual aesthetics -- some of them only recently published and still untranslated -- Tanke finds in Foucault not only a "philosophy of art," as announced by the book's title, but also a "lost genealogy" and a new "strand in the historical ontology of ourselves" (4). I pose these questions about Tanke's claims in the spirit of engagement and with genuine admiration for the book's contribution to Foucault studies, philosophical aesthetics, and art history. and in his subsequent writings about art. Las Meninas zeigt einen großen Raum des Alcázar von Madrid, der Hauptresidenz von König Philipp IV. Michel Foucault's study of Velazquez's Las Meninas (1) was first published in the volume Les Mots et les choses in 1966 which was followed, in 1970, by the English translation titled The Order of Things. Las Meninas is a picture about the role of framing: frames in the form of pictures, a mirror, doors and windows measure out the walls at the back and to the right, while the edge of the large canvas intrudes at the left.

Las meninas (como se conoce a esta obra desde el siglo XIX) o La familia de Felipe IV (según se describe en el inventario de 1734) se considera la obra maestra del pintor del Siglo de Oro español Diego Velázquez.Acabado en 1656, según Antonio Palomino, fecha unánimemente aceptada por la crítica, corresponde al último periodo estilístico del artista, el de plena madurez. Indeed, Tanke reminds his readers of Foucault's own misgivings about the term "modernity," quoting Foucault in a 1983 interview: "I've never clearly understood what was meant in France by the word 'modernity'" (13). To Foucault, Las Meninas is an exchange of perspectives between the painter depicted in his own work and the spectator. In, , the viewer "transforms into a doublet" (45): the same "strange empirico-transcendental doublet", in the Classical age, here, at the threshold of modernity, art and knowledge seem to. Las Meninas is Velazquez' most complex masterpiece of Baroque art, outshining all his other famous works including The Waterseller of Seville (1618-22); Christ on the Cross (c.1632 Prado), (1634-5 It is a fascinatingly modern painting, a mixture of realism and non-realism. Diego Velázquez's masterpiece, Las Meninas (1656), has inspired a number of di- verse modern interpretations, ranging from Picasso's radical reworkings of it to Michel Foucault's subtle writing about it.1We shall offer a deconstructive reading of this ever- enigmatic painting proceeding from Foucault's interpretation in Les mots et les choses.

Given this untimeliness, Tanke makes much of the shifting place of the viewer/painter in a Classical painting we can only interpret from the unstable perspective of our own historical present. Indeed, Tanke reminds his readers of Foucault's own misgivings about the term "modernity," quoting Foucault in a 1983 interview: "I've never clearly understood what was meant in France by the word 'modernity'" (13).

Linking the Cynics to Manet's "rupture," Tanke writes: "The key word in the 1984 course [on the Cynics] is eruption. It would seem, following the Velázquez chapter and the post-representational art-knowledge convergence described above, that this artistic rupture parallels an epistemic break at the end of the Classical age. painting, ushered in by Manet (Chapter Two), that marks the advent of non-representational modernity? Lacking any such explanation by Tanke (or even an acknowledgement that the resemblance-representation contradiction exists), one is left wondering what to make of it. Tanke situates Foucault's art writings in the interstitial space that separates aesthetic philosophy from art history. The epistemic shift from Renaissance resemblance to Classical representation in The Order of Things highlights a fraught relation between resemblance and representation that will appear repeatedly over the course of Tanke's study: from the self-referential materiality of Manet's tableaux-objets (Chapter Two) to the non-referential similitudes found in the visual-linguistic paintings of Magritte, Klee, and Kandinsky (Chapter Three) to the self-replicating release of the image in Warhol's Campbell soup cans, Fromanger's tableaux-events, or Michals's serial photographic narratives (Chapter Three) to the Cynical "anti-Platonism of modern art" (182) as an ethics of living (Chapter Five). So doing, he allows formal problems such as materiality, medium, lighting, color, depth, perspective, similitude, abstraction, and the place of the viewer to interface with familiar Foucauldian concepts such as archeological description, genealogical rupture, the event, ethical, , and the shifting relation between subjectivity and truth. The order of things : an archaeology of the human sciences. Clearly not, since Tanke repeatedly characterizes modern art as a rupturing force in the present. Cómo interpreta Foucault a Las Meninas, la obra más estudiada e incomprendida Por: Rodrigo Ayala - 11 de marzo, 2017 A esa lista de obras incomprensibles que tienen el enigma como un fantasma que las rodea, habría que sumar “Las meninas” (1556) del pintor sevillano Diego Velázquez. ? Las Meninas Blog, Ensayos 28-03-2017 Michel Foucault " Lo propio del saber no es ni ver ni demostrar, sino interpretar". Distanciando-se um pouco, o pintor colocou-se ao lado da obra na qual The book explores "how art sheds its traditional vocation in order to become modern" (5) through a systematic analysis of Foucault's claims about the post-representational nature of modern art. Tanke does not explicitly say what he means by ethics, but drawing on the claims just enumerated -- art as rupture, release, liberation, or reversal -- we can piece together what we might call an anti-normative ethics of freedom in the practices of the artistic subject. I O pintor está ligeiramente afastado do quadro. And because Foucault's attention to art is less sustained than his exploration of other matters -- madness, the human sciences, punishment, sexuality -- the tension between Foucault's unflinching insistence on historical singularity and certain transhistorical claims in his work becomes even more difficult to resolve. This close textual analysis is an excellent introduction to the following enveloping treatise on the "order of things." El cuadro representado en la escena, al estar vuelto de espaldas, oculta al espectador lo que está retratado en él. Tanke repeatedly describes this freedom as a force unearthed in history: Rebeyrolle's canvasses "dig into painting's representative capacity to unearth a play of forces" (90); similarly, Michals "overturns the conventions of photography by reaching into history to unearth alternative strategies" (153); and Foucault himself, in his lectures on the Cynics, "unearths an alternative path out of the ancient period" (169). This article focuses on the ways in which Foucault's Las Meninas has been represented and critiqued in art‐historical texts and endeavours to gauge its significance … Las Meninas . Aquí nos sirve de apoyo para una que aborda la mirada y … "When we take a genealogical look at Western art," Tanke writes, "we see that modernity is fundamentally incompatible with representation" (8). Is pre-representational Renaissance resemblance of the same order as modern post-representation? Tanke bookends his readings of art in modernity with an opening interpretation of Foucault's famous commentary on Diego Velázquez's Las Meninas (1656) in The Order of Things (1966) and, in the final chapter, an analysis of Foucault's last Collège de France lectures, Le Courage de la vérité, on the Cynical life as a work of art. Tanke's art-as-transgression theme seems to imply, once again, a divergent relation between art and knowledge, despite the post-representation convergence thesis. Shapiro began to address some of these issues in his chapters on Foucault and postmodern similitude. "Las Meninas" de Velázquez es un cuadro que aparece con frecuencia en las reflexiones de la filosofía. As Foucault puts it in The Archeology of Knowledge (1969), the archeological question remains: "what is this singular existence that comes to light in what is said" -- or in the case of art, in what is painted, photographed, or filmed -- "and nowhere else?"[3]. Since French philosopher Foucault's landmark essay on Las Meninas, many art historians and critics have commented on the role of the viewer in relation to the painting. These permutations of the resemblance-representation theme originate in the Las Meninas chapter, where Tanke rehearses Foucault's description of the relation between the Renaissance and Classical epistemes. But what are we to make of the genealogical rupture this implies? Another example illustrates this point, in this case as an anti-psychological artistic practice at odds with a psychological ordering of knowledge. Lança um olhar em direção ao modelo. Para Foucault, “Las meninas” ejemplarizan el paradigma de la manera privilegiada de acceder a la verdad en la modernidad (en ciencia, esto se traduce así: el objeto de estudio se representa (se toma una muestra del mundo a estudiar) y se enuncian fórmulas, modelos y … Tanke presents Foucault's writings on art as a "necessary corrective to the ahistorical tendencies of philosophical aesthetics" (5). von Spanien. 1945), and Duane Michals (b.

Let me focus on two conceptual problems that emerge there. ted here.4 And it is on this basis that the meaning of Las Meninas is today inter-preted as a claim for the nobility of painting as a liberal art and as a personal claim for nobility on the part of Velazquez himself. Reviewed by Lynne Huffer, Emory University. Tanke's art-as-transgression theme seems to imply, once again, a divergent relation between art and knowledge, despite the post-representation convergence thesis. Then, bearing … First, what is the historico-philosophical relation between resemblance and representation? Subject: Reading the Order of Things - Las Meninas Since Monday comes to me before most of you, I guess I'd better start. At the same time, and somewhat contradictorily, the book's non-representational thesis rests on the repeated assertion of a definitive break with a Renaissance and Classical representational order, defined through the pictorial conventions -- depth, perspective, and the illusion of non-materiality -- associated with quattrocento painting. Specifically, Tanke argues that Duane Michals's photographic images eliminate psychological depth (151, 155) and "restore a freedom to seeing, thinking, and feeling" (160) through the evocation of "timeless thought-emotions" (160). “Las Meninas”, dans sa version extensive (une caméra, trois magnétoscopes, six moniteurs), sera primée lors de la lors de la XIIIe Biennale de São Paulo en 1975.
