Out now: Experimental Aesthetics
For over a decade now, the debate on art has been dominated by the rhetoric of artistic research. However, does the concept of artistic research still express its originally radical and experimental power today?
The concept seems to have become hackneyed and obscured by method fever and academic jargon. Perhaps the time has come to invigorate its conceptual framework – for example through terminology referring to its companion in art, namely philosophy’s branch of aesthetics. Could experimental and speculative processes of thought again be leading in aesthetic debates and contemporary art? These are the issues that come to the fore in this publication through a series of projects, views, and perspectives connected to the project Aesthetic Jam – part of the 9th Tapei Biennial.
Contributions by Andre Alves, Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan, Clodagh Emoe, Boris Groys, Irene Kopelman, Hongjohn Lin, Chus Martinez, John Rajchman, Henk Slager, Timotheus Vermeulen, and Mick Wilson.
