Aesthetics of Installation Art

Juliane Rebentisch in conversation with Douglas Crimp.

In recent years, debates surrounding the concept of art have focused in particular on installation art, as its diverse manifestations have proven to be incompatible with the modern idea of aesthetic autonomy. Juliane Rebentisch, author of the newly translated Aesthetics of Installation Art (Sternberg Press, 2012), asserts that installation art does not, as is often assumed, dispute aesthetic autonomy per se, and rather should be understood as calling for a fundamental revision of this very concept. Rebentisch thus proposes a new understanding of art as well as of its ethical and political dimension.
