I am happy to announce my artistic presence in the 384-page work of art history devoted to the artistic representation of joy. Written by Paul Ardenne.
The smiling face of ancient art to today (Western and non-Western art); bodies celebrating, alone or in groups; participatory art forms aimed at well-being and harmony; charitable art dispensing concrete benefit, in the spirit of care. The different forms of expression examined are drawing, painting, banners, sculpture, photography, video art, performances. Joy is also a political issue: Arbeit macht Freude Nazi, entertainment strategies, Feelgood culture, joy prefabricated by entertainment media and constituting a market. These specific “uses” of joy, which distort it, give rise to a specific field of representation, also analyzed and illustrated in the work.
