Uživanje u pogledu / Pleasure in the Gaze

Jovana Sibinović


This work examines a system of signals whose perception is founded upon the sense of sight. Different analyses in regard to seeing, the theory of the view, and reflection are investigated through the works of Ernest Gombrich, Nelson Goodman, Martin Jay, and Norman Bryson. The exploration of their theories relates to discourse in the art world (the language of art), the language of critique, and the language of the theory of art. The question of visual presentation, and visual semantics are posited; in that, a difference between the actual state of affairs (that which is perceived) and the its possible view is also demonstrated.


pleasure in the gaze, gaze/glance, perception, seeing
