Example text

What, then, are these artists trying to do? I think it is putting us in touch with the fact that history has such moments. I think of, in my own lifetime, something such as the magnicide of Kennedy, that will never be solved, about which we will never know the truth, you know? And that is terrible. I grew up in a time when it was important to know if Oswald assassinated Kennedy. Lots of people didn’t believe he did, but we don’t have any other answer. There are other mysteries… In a certain way, history is a place where we fight for coherence, sense and meaning.

Paulo Herkenhoff I don’t want to monopolise the debate but I would also like to ask you if you too feel that sometimes there is a void between the absence of a theory of history in artists and their pressing need to show history. In what way does this affect real results? Martin Jay Well. I believe that the philosophy or the theory of art is something that practising historians rarely, in a conscious way, incorporate in their work. What I mean is that this rides over them, it is something that occasional philosophers or historians do such as Hayden White, who I mentioned in the talk, or people such as Frank Ankersmit.

Now in court, the policemen’s defence was able to put this into doubt by contesting the truthfulness of the video tape that registered the event. The defence was able to make it meaningless, subtracting the meaning, even the direct empirical meaning, not to mention the allegorical meaning of the black man being beaten by white authority. The policemen were able to go free. So it is an incredible moment in which the context was revalidated and the narrative re-interpretation imposed itself on eyewitness evidence, the evidence of the documentary.
