Changes made in the configuration and mapping of artistic practices imply a revision of the categories that guide this type of work. This leads to the revision and questioning of these categories through which these activities have been thought and theorized. The following questioning aims to evaluate and revaluate the viability of its postulates, so as to give account of certain artistic productions within a highly differentiated framework. This paper addresses this becoming to analyze the conditions of possibility of the concepts of autonomy and shape in the light of contemporary art and especially of the so-called relational art practices.
