Beyond Aesthetics: Returning Force and Truth to Art and Its Education
Jagodzinski, Jan
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v50 n4 p338-351 2009
This essay argues for a fundamental change in the direction of art, its education and research that draws on Alain Badiou's notion of "inaesthetics" and negative affirmation as well as Deleuze's reorientation of "aesthetics." I draw on the inspiration of Vincent Lanier's critical spirit and Irwin Kaufmann's ideas on art, creativity, and research as they appear in the first issue of "Studies in Art Education" to argue for such a line of light. A number of neologisms are introduced that develop this potentiality of the force and truth of art that are "beyond aesthetics" as it is commonly understood. (Contains 8 footnotes.)
