New publication: Prof. Dr. Žarko Paić


Prof. Dr. Žarko Paić, research fellow at the International Center for the Study of Contemporary Nihilism (CeNic), has recently published the book Art and the Technosphere: The Platforms of Strings (2022) by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. In this book, Prof. Dr. Žarko Paić, starting from the analysis of the relationship between aesthetics and contemporary art, investigates hermeneutics, phenomenology and semiotics with regard to the notion of image and its new status in avant-garde art, which turned towards the analysis of posthumanism/transhumanism.

Also, the author points out the importance of starting to think about the aesthetic construction of worlds, instead of representing the idea in its eternity, and explains that contemporary art from avant-garde procedures of shock, provocation and experimentation enters the field of metatheory of visualization of the event. Prof. Dr. Paić indicates that the problem is no longer to inquire into “what” art is, but “how” the difference between the aesthetic object and artificial life is to be determined, insofar as the event of creation and enjoyment in a digital simulation constitutes a historical development of art.
