Following the recent 'speculative turn' in continental philosophy, the aim of this volume is to propose a 'counter-discourse' of speculative approaches to art history. How could today's materialist, realist, pragmatist, vitalist or object-oriented speculations offer alternatives to the mere complementarity of philosophy of art and art history, often based on mutual recognition and critical limitation rather than imaginative crossovers? What new intermedial methodologies do they provide for art and art historical writing? Or how can the encounter with art induce new forms of speculative philosophy? How do concepts of time and contingency challenge typically modern engagements with art's 'history'? Can art history experience a work of art in its novelty beyond its historical facticity? Does the speculative turn open up new ways of extending art into fields of biology and mathematics?show more
