“God is dead”, we’ve discovered the universe and the atom, can we have a Renaissance today? By drawing comparison between our post-modern era and one of the best-known zeniths in Art history, this seminar aims to provide a brief personal inquiry into the role and the nature of art and artists, as well as the potential and limitations of art in the post-modern age. It attempts to see art holistically: in religion, in science, in philosophy, in psychology, in poetry and literature – and of course in art history, from Ancient Greece to the Song Dynasty, from Michelangelo to Bada Shanren, from Vincent van Gogh to Anselm Kiefer. Despite art being elusive with forever shifting boundaries, and that we can never define it, this seminar continues to explore: what art is.

 “上帝已死”,我們發現了宇宙,又發現了基本粒子,後現代是否也能文藝復興?將藝術史上最具盛名的時期與後現代做比較,本次講演是蘭天D. 對於藝術的本質及其在後現代的潛力與局限的一次簡短探研。旨在把藝術重新放回文明這個整體中看待:從宗教、科學、哲學、心理學、詩歌和文學的視角來看,還從藝術史 ─ 從古希臘到宋,從米開朗基羅到八大山人,從梵高到基弗 ─ 的角度來看。儘管藝術有着遊移的邊界,難以捉摸且不能被定義,本次研討會仍舊要探索:藝術是什麽。
