Ecology and Art – in the network of discourses

Keywords: art discourses, ecological discourse, eco-art, land art

Abstract

Art, just like our public life, is entangled in the network of discourses. In this article, using the example of ecology-related art, I present how this network develops and what could constitute an impulse to create new connections. I also indicate how the discursivization of art begins with nomenclature itself. I consider reflecting on the network of discourses and entering the level of metadiscourse as a way of freeing oneself from the limiting community of interpretation. Similarly, I see the type of art that creates spaces for joint activities as a way out of the dangerous rivalry of discourses.
