Summary: This paper clarifies the thesis of the avant-garde as the transition from an aesthetic contemplation to action intentions through the distinction of the two regions of the European avant-garde: the core (European empires) and the periphery (Europe "new" nation-states). Theoretical performances of Odysseas Elytis in this perspective are the top of the Greek (peripheral) avant-garde.

IMAGINARY INTERESUBJECTIVITY IN GEORGES BATAILLE'S TRANSGRESSIVE COMMUNITY
Author: Weiser Tatiana, PhD, Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Summary: The article explores the search of the new forms of communitarian experience within the historical moment when the totalitarian idea reached its fullest flower in 1940s. The loss of communitarian connections, the rupture of communicative relationshipы between people were experienced as the most painful moment of the period. A French philosopher and writer Georges Bataille (1897–1962) proposed a new model of imaginary community that aimed to transgress any traditional notion of sociality and to overcome rational categories of sociological analysis. The imaginary community was constituted as an ecstatic dramatization of communitarian experience within writing, in the literary or philosophical text. The author of the article shows that such a model of community contains implicit dangers as it does not distinguish enough between a subjective aspect of experiencing ecstasy and a moral regulative aspect of intersubjective interaction.
Keywords: community, subjectivity, intersubjectivity, dramatization, imagination

D. DICKIE’S EARLY INSTITUTIONAL THEORY OF ART. PRECONDITIONS AND SOURCES OF ORIGIN
Author: Inozemtseva Alexandra, Moscow state university Faculty of Philosophy postgraduate Department of aesthetics, e-mail: email@example.com
Summary: In the second half of the XX century the Art practice significantly increased its scope: a specific style, correspondently enhanced the very limits of art. Adding to that, not always the creation rising in modern culture is acknowledged by the recipient it as an art product, unlike the authors, critics and other representatives of the Art world own perception. American aesthetics were among the first to focus on the analysis of modern artistic practices. The idea of impossibility of influencing the universal understanding of art was already shaped by that time, as formed by authors like M.Weitz, P.Ziff, W. Kennick, M. Mandelbaum, B.R. Tilghman basing themselves in Wittgenstein’s theory of ‘language as a form of life’. D Dickie contested this theory and created his own institutional theory of art. In this article, we analyze the preconditions for the emergence of the sources of European and American philosophy, which constituted the basis for the creation of Dickie’s institutional theory of art and attempted to define art as a specific institutional system and bring it to an objective understanding.
Keywords: institutional theory of Art, definition of art, essencialny approach to the definition of art, wittgenstein's theory of language games, «Artworld» , A. Danto, M. Weitz, D. Dickie
