HISTORY OF ART

The history of art is the history of any activity or product made by humans in a visual form for aesthetical or communicative purposes, expressing ideas, emotions or, in general, a worldview. Over time visual art has been classified in diverse ways, from the medieval distinction between liberal arts and mechanical arts, to the modern distinction between fine arts and applied arts, or to the many contemporary definitions, which define art as a manifestation of human creativity. The subsequent expansion of the list of principal arts in the 20th century reached to nine:

Defining the Creative and Cultural Sector

As a broad, complex and evolving mix of industries that range from the performing and visual arts to magazine publishing, digital media and design, there is no commonly recognized definition of the breadth (i.e. industry and occupational composition) and depth (i.e. extent of the value chain) of the sector internationally – however, there is emerging consensus on the key industries that constitute its nucleus.

 

Art scape uses a typology created by The Work Foundation to define the creative and cultural sector. This encompasses three key components: core creative fields, cultural industries and creative services.

 

Core Creative Fields: focus on the production of “originals” (e.g., visual arts, artisan crafts, designer-makers) and “experiences” (e.g. live theatre, dance, and music as well as heritage). Their commercial outputs possess a high degree of expressive value and invoke copyright protection.

 

Cultural Industries: focus on creative content-producing industries, whether private or public, which exploit intellectual property (IP) through mass production (e.g., film and television production, broadcasting, record companies, book and magazine publishers, computer games and leisure software). Their activities involve mass reproduction of expressive outputs based on copyright.

 

Creative Services: are based around providing creative services to clients, earning revenue through fee-for-service and providing IP that has a high degree of both expressive and functional value (e.g., design consultancies, advertising agencies, architecture practices, digital media firms). The use of expressive value is essential to the performance of these sectors.
