MAKING SENSE OF A WORLD IN THE MAKING
Enactivism, Social Aesthetics, (Un)controllability
PERMANENT SEMINAR OF AESTHETICS 2023
Participation exclusively online on the Google Meet platform: http://meet.google.com/ptd-fhxt-buc
The Permanent Seminar of Aesthetics, in collaboration with Cattedra internazionale Emilio Garroni, aims to articulate research paths on the background of Emilio Garroni’s reflection, which has deeply marked the studies of the Roman school of Aesthetics. Starting from the discussion of some central theoretical places of this tradition – from Kant’s notion of Gemeinsinn, in its theoretical/aesthetic/political values, to that of the status of perception and imagination – in recent years the attempt has been to explore the possibility of new connections between aesthetics and participation, with a focus on artistic practices and urban form of life as exemplary laboratories to observe and question the contemporary world.
The purpose of the seminar series 2023 is to investigate a number of interconnected themes: the relationship between unreflected experience and intentional reflection, between spontaneity and control; the ‘impersonal’ organization of experience; the debate on various forms of enactivism; the conditions of possibility of meaning in (urban) experience; the aesthetics of social relations; the transformations of perception in relation to new digital realities.
