Aesthetics at Work
Unipub forlag, 2007 - Art - 176 pages
This anthology deals with the changing state of the arts and the incorporation and relevance of the aesthetic dimension in daily life in general. The articles are not restricted to the arts, but the emphasis are given to aesthetics at work: the arts in their interaction, new aesthetical forms, new aesthetical activities, media and expressions including aesthetical dimensions in current economical and technological development, all those aesthetical tendencies that contribute to our world today. The book represents a decisive development in existing theories of art, mainly for taking the expanding field of aesthetics seriously. The authors make a critical contribution to a contemporary social tendency and is therefore of general as well as academic interest. The contributors represent aesthetic studies, musicology, art-history, literature and media. Together they have published widely within the aesthetic field and they all take part in the development of an aesthetic program at the University of Oslo.
