Throughout the twentieth century, critical art history often chose to ally itself with a restrictive brand of formalism. Therefore, critical analyses regularly reduced the artwork to its material and its social use. Based on this observation, historian Sebastian Egenhofer takes Deleuze's readings of philosophers as a starting point to renew the narrative of art history since the 1960s.
