RONCALLO, Sergio. Thinking art in the media age. Signo pensam. [online]. 2006, n.49, pp. 86-99. ISSN 0120-4823.
This article attempts approaching new artistic manifestations that can be seen in a world colonized by mass media. It departs from the idea according to which art has not died. Then it explores, in the same direction, changes suffered by notions, such as beauty and re-presentation. In the same way, it looks for new places penetrated by the esthetic domain, and proposes an open reading that allows us to re-think the artistic manufactures of mankind in the middle of a reality in which classic standards seem to be of no use as reading keys.
Keywords : Aesthetics; mass media; beautiful (idea of); taste; representation; mimesis.
