X. 6 May Peter Bürger, Theory of the Avant-garde [1974] -Art into life What is, for Peter Bürger, the historical avant-garde? Dada, Surrealism, Russian avant-garde after October revolution What are the common features? -Do not reject individual artistic techniques and procedures of earlier art… --But rather they reject that art in its entirety… -Radical break with tradition. -In their most extreme manifestations, their primary target is art as an institution such as it has developed in bourgeois society What about cubism? -Part of historical avant-garde because it questions linear perspective that had prevailed since the Renaissance…BUT it doesn’t share basic tendency: sublation of art in the praxis of life So, what is the institution against which dada, and the avant-garde, react? Important passages: -22/ distribution apparatus Status of art in bourgeoisie society as defined by the concept of autonomy -Bürger draws heavily upon Marx, and trains his basic premise along Adam smith’s theory of wealth and Marx’s theory of labor -Adam smith: it is not specific forms of labor but labor as such that creates wealth.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
