Example text

Art can produce the same effects as objects do only because seeing a picture is itself a temporal activity, just as much as our perceptually mediated active engagement in the world: “The viewer’s essential activity is also temporal. It brings [the picture] into sight one part after another, and in order to focus on a new piece, it must leave the old one” (Klee 1919: 34). Klee understood intuitively that perception can’t be understood as a processing of data taken up in discrete, static moments.

In the sections that follow, the matter of ultimate concern will be whether Klee’s account of the production of the work of art, as well as the apprehension of the work of art, supports and advances on the phenomenological view I’ve tried to sketch out. Klee and the artist’s body as medium Paul Klee affords us a rare opportunity in thinking about art as phenomenology. He was not just an artist, but also a theoretically sophisticated writer and lecturer. In addition to Klee’s published writings and public lectures on his art and art in general, there are over 3,300 pages of notes from Klee’s 10 years of lecture courses offered at the Bauhaus and at 21 M AR K W R ATH A L L the Düsseldorf Academy (see Franciscono 1991: 244).

Heidegger 1957: 69) 6 The metaphysical view forms “free abstract structures which surpass schematic intention”; I think that means that they give us a grasp that exceeds any particular intentional directedness toward a thing. 7 We’ll look at some examples of the eye moving through the work below. Although I won’t discuss it here, an example of the whole body moving with respect to the work is provided by (1926/80), where each gate recedes perspectivally in a way that specifies a different position for the viewer.
