• The book deals with questions of art history as well as the science of various levels on the basis of conceptual critique (Badt sees them as connected). The premise of Badt’s discourse is that “space is not an immediate object of artistic representation” but rather an “effect” as spatial effects are not immediate in the art works but always indirectly shaped by the representation” of bodies (volumes/mass) in architecture, plasticity in sculpture, and shapes, composition, or arrangement in painting (11). He suggested similarities between the representation of space before and after the age of perspective because he viewed the abstraction of the concept of space in modern art can be understood as a “new” expression of scientific understanding of space emerged in the modern age.
