Transformations and interpretations of the concept of «home» in contemporary art

Loginova M.V., Prokhorova N.I.


The article considers the transformations of the concept of «home» as if a universal marker of the metamorphosis in contemporary art. It investigates separate interpretations of the concept of «home» in the work by artists I. Kabakov, R. Magritte, G. Matt-Clark, V. Pivovarov, M. Rosler and others. The sense of «home» depends on the cultural situation and the framework of the artistic direction. The concept of «home» shows a ten-dency towards deconstruction, its semantic boundaries are subject to displacement, «scattering» of meanings fixed in culture.
