Aesthetics and critique III

Thinking in Pandemic Times

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 by João Fernandes

Summary

L'initiative de cet atelier de recherche découle de l'urgent besoin de circonscrire et de redéfinir le rôle de l'esthétique, des arts et de leur théorisation aujourd'hui, tant par rapport aux autres formations du savoir que par rapport à nos sociétés contemporaines en général. Quelles sont les fonctions critiques de l'esthétique aujourd'hui ? Comment l'enquête sur les conditions sensibles et incarnées de la connaissance, l'exploration des fondements imaginaires de l'action sociale et politique ou l'engagement avec des œuvres d'art contribuent à renouveler cette tâche ancienne : l'autocritique de la raison sensible ?
