It is the observer, who makes the artwork come alive, and therefore he is the one who fulfills it. This has always been like that, and hasn’t changed today. But the observer has been able to get more and more involved in the artwork through an act of his own creation. These changes are most likely to be explained by ever changing new technologies. This is just the point that this work picks up at. It takes a look at the History of Ideas in Art throughout the 20th Century and find hints on today’s radical upheavals in artworks structure and the relationship between the artist and the receiver. The dematerialisation of art objects implicates the separation of a mental idea from its material realisation—machines are introduced into the art form as art objects, computers enable new accesses to reception, interaction and participation in art. Within the variety of technological developments the recipient finds him / herself in constant transition with his / her own perception and must redefine it constantly. The line between artist, observer and the work of art become indistinct. Still the blurred boundaries of what is possible and what is not, leave room for additional interpretations and possible changes in art appreciation.
