Collingwood's ‘performance’ theory of art

British Journal of Aesthetics 48 (2):162-174 (2008)
Abstract
Even if we reject the Wollheimian reading of Collingwood as an Idealist in the ontology of art, it remains puzzling how his non-Idealist ontology fits with his idea of art as expression. In trying to clarifying these matters, I argue that (i) the work of art, for Collingwood, is an activity, not the product of an activity; (ii) puzzling features of the Principles arise from attempts to reconcile this claim with the idea of art as expression while preserving the art/craft distinction; and (iii) Collingwood's principal concern in the Principles is with the role of imagination in experience.
