Axel-von-Criegern (art77blog): How does art work?

Art in the Social Media: The blog of the painter and art educator Axel von Criegern

Since 2016, Axel von Criegern has reflected on art and artistic practice in his weekly art77blog, which now reaches roughly 1,200 subscribers. Taking an image or a concept as his starting point, he formulates an artistic question, identifies the challenges of creative work, relates his own creative work as a classical art historian to works from art history, or reflects on what he has experienced at exhibitions and concerts. Von Criegern draws on sixty years of his own artistic activity, as well as on fifty years of art teaching. The blog form invites readers to comment and criticize, because, for the author, art always thrives on the exchange of experiences. A larger selection of contributions is summarized in this volume, whereby the subtitle “Wie geht Kunst?” (How Does Art Work?) alludes not only to the author’s own curiosity, but also to the impossibility of simple answers.
