New publication: Prof. Dr. Žarko Paić


Prof. Dr. Žarko Paić, research fellow at the International Center of Studies on Contemporary Nihilism (CeNic), has published The Uncanny: Contemporary Art and Its Theory (Amazon Publishing, 2023). The book deals extensively with problems of contemporary art theory: the body in the space and time of digital technologies, the theory of a new image, new media and aesthetics. The basic thesis of Prof. Paić is that the entry into the era of total visualization of the world marks the end of the metaphysical idea of the perdurability of Being in works of art, whereby it is now about the signature and superimposition of new ‘life-worlds’; a new form of construction of artificial life with which we can no longer consider art and aesthetics as the contemplation of the object, but only as the power to create new relations between autonomous objects and the imagination.
