Aesthetics of Distance

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientific


Distance has been too much overlooked in art theory and aesthetic theory. I aim to show in my article how important it is politically, as our ethical concerns are weaker the more distant an issue is. Here the aesthetic side of a phenomenon takes easily over when the ethical gets weak.
