The new edition studies the experience of seeing pictures
The recent issue of Studies on Art and Architecture explores the pictorial experience.
The special issue „Depiction: Contemporary Studies on Pictorial Representation“ is a collection of articles on pictorial experience. It has been edited by Regina-Nino Mion, a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Art History and Visual Culture.
The research articles from different philosophical traditions address questions: How does seeing objects differ from seeing pictures of these objects? Is imagination necessarily involved in the experience of seeing pictures? Is seeing photographs a special kind of pictorial experience distinguished from the seeing of other pictures?
Copies are available for purchase at the academy’s library and the Institute of Art History and Visual Culture.
