Immanuel Kant: Aesthetics

Douglas Burnham elucidates Kant’s Critique of Judgment. Kant discussed aesthetic judgement, taste, beauty, claims leading to formalism, aesthetic ideas (leading to conceptualism and to formlessness), aesthetic experience, the sublime, genius and fine art. Also, Kant bridged aesthetics to ethics.

A refresher and/or necessary reading in relation to Duchamp’s Fountain. NSU Art Museum celebrates the centenary of Fountain. Fountain and the stories told about it seem to dramatize Critique of Judgment.

I would separate the valorization of Duchamp from the mythologizing of Fountain.

Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven might need to be acknowledged.

Some photobooks

Chiara Bardelli Nonino recommends some photobooks.

A good photograph, according to poet Charles Simic, is “a self-contained little universe inexhaustible to scrutiny”. The same can be said of a good photobook: an object that, if successful, captivates us with a constant tension between its finiteness and infinite explorability.
