This talk will reflect on the relations between the temporal and periodizing categories of the classical, the modern and the contemporary, via a critique of their rearticulation in the Pushkin XXI project of the Pushkin Museum Moscow. Setting out from Ernest Gombrich’s famous account of ‘the stylistic categories of art history’ in his 1963 essay ‘Norm and Form’, it asks: ‘Can this mode of periodization really still be extended up to the present today?’ ‘Wherein lies the true difference of the contemporary?’, ‘What critical work does it do as a designation for a particular kind of art?’

Peter Osborne, PhD, is Professor of Modern European Philosophy and Director of the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), Kingston University London. He has held Visiting International Chairs in the Philosophy Department of several Universities and is an internationally sought-after author.
