Download for FREE at revisionfairy.com What makes something "art"? If an object falls under the category of “art,” then you'd suspect it has something in common with other items in this category. Art forms, however, produce strikingly different manifestations of art. For example, sculpture produces three-dimensional art, painting and drawing produce two-dimensional art, and performance art produces a time frame in which the art exists. How do these distinct practices have the possibility of producing creations that are acknowledged as “art?” The Philosophical Functionality of the Tattoo focuses on tattoos, a traditionally unaccepted type of art, to help understand the properties attributed to art. If tattoos are not “art,” why not? If tattoos are “art,” why so? Figuring out these characteristics about tattoos, specifically, contributes to the general ontology of art.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Kunst - Sonstiges, Note: 1,0, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (Kunstgeschichte), Veranstaltung: "Black Art" - im Spannungsfeld von postkolonialer Kritik und Globalisierung, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Eine Ausstellung gilt als Medium, als „Beglaubigungsanordnung oder als Ort der Realitätsproduktion“. Indem Objekte auf eine bestimmte Art und Weise angesammelt, präsentiert und interpretiert werden, werden sie Teil einer Ausstellungssemantik. Jede Ausstellung besitzt somit eine spezifische Rhetorik und bezieht eine Position oder trifft eine Aussage zu zeithistorisch relevanten Thematiken. In der vorliegenden Arbeit soll die Kunstausstellung "The Global Contemporary". Kunstwelten nach 1989 (17.11.2011 bis 05.02.12 im ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe) hinsichtlich der Präsentation und Rezeption von „Black Art“ analysiert werden. Letzterer Begriff bezeichnet die Kunstproduktion aus Afrika stammender oder dort lebender KünstlerInnen und wurde im Rahmen des Black Power Movement geprägt. Demnach wird untersucht, welchem übergeordneten Thema die Ausstellung unterliegt und welche kuratorischen Strategien auszumachen sind, wie und unter welchem Aspekt die Kunst afrikanischer zeitgenössischer KünstlerInnen in diesem thematischen Kontext ausgewählt und präsentiert wurde: Spielt die Diskussion von „Blackness“ noch eine Rolle? Wenn ja, wie wird sie dargestellt, eventuell verkompliziert oder gar dekonstruiert? Wie verbinden sich die Themenfelder „Black Art“ und Globalisierung? Der Fokus liegt hierbei auf den drei Künstlern Meschac Gaba, Moshekwa Langa und Chéri Samba. Im Folgenden soll die Rhetorik der Ausstellung erläutert und aufgezeigt werden, welche Bedeutung den afrikanischen Künstlern zukommt. Ethnologische, kunsttheoretische und kulturwissenschaftliche Texte bilden den theoretischen Kontext für diese Untersuchung.

Introductory chapters include educational information on methods for tattooing, types of tattoos, tattoo inks, and tattoo ink toxicology. The focus is on the diagnosis and classification of tattoo complications. In this regard, a comprehensive atlas of acute and chronic complications serves as a valuable tool.

Jack doesn't know what he's got himself into. One minute he and his best friend Charlie were up in Chinatown having crispy duck with Charlie's dad (and Jack was having to listen to Charlie shouting at his dad for leaving his mum) - then next minute they were in a mysterious room above a theatre, with some of the strangest characters they'd ever encountered. And they were about to take The Test. . . and something very very weird was about to begin. The Test transforms Charlie - leaving him with the distinctive markings of the Black Tattoo - and with a temper that seems out of control.

For thousands of years, people have engaged in ritualistic marking of the skin to identify themselves as a member of a tribe, of a lineage, of a mindset, or of a subculture. The ancient art of tattooing is a tradition we carry on to this day. While the past 10 years have seen no shortage of books about tattoos and tattooing, most are best described as â€œidea books.â€? Until now, none have profiled the worldâ€™s most renowned artists across a variety of styles. This book explores this most basic form of self-expression by showcasing the studios and work of 18 of the worldâ€™s top tattoo artists, including Suluâ€™ape Angela (San Diego), Aaron Bell (Seattle), Bugs (Los Angeles), Mo Cappoletta (London), Madame Chan (Brussels), Daniel DiMattia (Liege), Durga (Jakarta), Gakkin (Kyoto), Horiryu (Costa Mesa), Henning Jorgensen (Copenhagen), Rory Keating (San Diego), Brent McCowan (Carinthia), Maneko (Brasilia), Keone Nunes (Oahu), Noon (New York/London/Berlin), Sua Suluâ€™ape Petelo (Sydney), Te Rangitu (Waipapa), and Simon & Eddie (Hartama). Each chapter profiles the artist in the context of where he or she fits into the overall tradition of tattooing, while the photos showcase not only the art but also the artists and their workspaces.
