Titled “Art History Revisited”, issue 85 of “Texte zur Kunst” is dedicated to art historiography. This is now the third time that the magazine seeks to shed light on the methods and principles of this humane discipline, the discourses of which form its crucial foundation. While the 1994 issue under the heading “Art History Under Construction” put the import of theories from the Anglo-American countries to Germany up for debate, an issue from 2006 was concerned with reflecting on the state of affairs of a discipline that at the time was extremely influenced by visual studies and an increasing enthusiasm for “contemporary art”.
