From the 1960s onwards, the philosophy of art, or rather its critique, has – through deconstruction of the basic concepts on which the modernistic myth is based – been pointing to the existence of complex mechanisms and social technologies of production of meanings which can be ideologically mobilized with the aim of preserving the status quo to which art, just like all other areas of human activity, is not immune. It has become clear that what we call art is not only subject to the influences of ideology, but in fact functions as a constituent part of a specific ideology. The aim of the theme of this Congress was to determine possible extensions of the concept of art. The theme Strategies of power was divided into three sub-themes, each of which was the subject of one-day discussions. The sub-themes are as follows: I. THE LEGACY OF MODERNISM AND THE IMPERATIVE OF MODERNITY (…) II. INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORKS (…) III. SEXUALITY AND POWER.
