The European claim to universalism in aesthetics and the collectivity of documenta fifteen. Reflection on the German debate

The lecture deals with the controversial public discussion in Germany on documenta fifteen from a philosophical perspective. My thesis is that statements in this debate are implicitly based on the premises of a Kantian-influenced aesthetic theory; they are contrasted with discussion strategies from non-European contexts. The Kantian universalist idea of an aesthetic common sense is read critically in the sense of a postcolonial critique. Are there other universal approaches to artistic agency that are more strongly characterized by an attitude of listening?


Judith Siegmund, Dr., is Professor of Philosophical Aesthetics at the Zurich University of the Arts. Her research focuses on: Aesthetic theories and their contribution to contemporary theorizing of art and formative action, English and Scottish Enlightenment of the 18th century, connection between ethics, politics and aesthetics, production-aesthetic theorizing, art, and politics: models of intervention and participation.
