The concept and central place ›work of art‹ has been neglected by the turn to aesthetic experience. But the work of art cannot be grasped fully by the act of aesthetic experience; it is rather a place, where the essential relation between aesthetic and existential experience becomes known. The work of art is mere potentiality, which appears in the actuality of aesthetic experience. Beyond the difference of potentiality and actuality, object and subject, the work of art exists in the ontological mode of can-being, of being open to the world.
