With the modernization and industrialization of culture, the question of the work of art’s function was raised high, though it was soon to be occluded by other, market-driven arguments about its actual value. Still, the effort to open up the work of art to ever-better, basic, existential functions has continued. They are the focus of Molly Nesbit’s research.
