Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

 
Artworks: works of art are human creations that are not directly focussed on the maintenance of life functions, but are intended to open the possibility for a realization that is freed from life-world constraints and purposes. At the same time, works of art should allow us to look at these constraints. In the modern world, works of art escape direct intelligibility to the extent that understanding itself has increasingly become a necessity of the everyday world. See also aesthetics, art, critique, society, history, enlightenment, recognition.

I 106
As things, they are already subject to the criticism of the givenness which distinguishes the physiognomist from the recipient. "The given is in its poor and blind form, not objectivity [...]." (Negative Dialektik, p 186).
---
Grenz I 108
Artworks/Adorno/Grenz: artworks are distorting, pure constructions depicting utopia ... They are abstract negations of past works, certain negations of the real synchronous relation between nature and mankind, which can be determined in them as the always-sameness of superfluous being restrained of humans.

Grenz I 199
Artwork/Adorno/Grenz: "The historical moment is constitutive in the artworks; the authentic ones are the ones that entrust themselves to the historical content of their time without reservation and without the presumption to be above it. They are the historiography of their epoch unconscious to themselves. The last but not least, mediates them to recognition". (Ästhetische Theorie, p. 272).
Utopia/Art/Adorno/Grenz: "The form of all artistic utopia today is to do things of which we do not know what they are." (Quasi una Fantasia, p. 437).
