Collector and collection, an indivisible unit (Doctoral thesis)

Αυλωνίτου, Ζαχαρούλα

The main position of the present dissertation is the view that the interaction between pioneer art collectors and their collections, which makes them an indivisible unity, is one of the decisive factors of transformation and widening of the aesthetic patterns of their society. This is confirmed by the story of the action and interaction between the pioneers and the rest of the art collectors in the West and in the Soviet Union in the 20th century, as proposed here, as well as by the examination of the interactive relationship between the collector George Costakis and his collection on the theme of Russian Avant-garde. This relationship is analyzed and interpreted in multiple levels, while its impact on the collections’ environment of the Stalinist and metastalinist Russia and the West is explored. Costakis' action is described as corrective and, under certain conditions, of a pioneer nature. At the same time, the motives and parameters of the collective action in general and of the particular collector are summarized and categorized. Furthermore, on the one hand, the creation of a database for the art collection activity during the 20th century, and on the other hand the study of both the activity of G. Kostakis and of the content of his collection, function in support of the documentation and limitation of arbitrariness in the formulation of quantified judgments about the specific collector and his collection. The latter are based on a bipolar evaluation system, which reveals an extremely striking and intense profile of the collector G. Kostakis and his collection until today, whilst the possibility of this profile changing over time should not be ruled out.
