“L’art pour l’art” | Art for the sake of Art

“All art is quite useless” (Wilde: 1985, 22). This short statement of Oscar Wilde in his Preface to The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890) expresses one of the central aspects of the idea of Art for Art’s Sake: art shall have no other aim than being art and it should be protected from subordination to any moral, didactic, social or political purpose. Art should be an end in itself and have no specific use in terms of the utilitarian philosophers. This concept is not one to emerge in the 19th century for the first time, but the movement referred to by the term Art for Art’s Sake is. An art installation done by students of IV Semester in the University campus.
