« The organizers warmly invite abstract submissions for the 2023 Annual Conference of the Nordic Society for Aesthetics, with the leading topic, “Aesthetics and the body”. Aesthetics is inextricably linked with the body; with the body as sensing and as sensed; with objects as embodied, forming the shape of artworks, gestures and rhythm. As bodies we sense the world, at the same time as our experience is mediated, opening up a field of tension and distance, of the object as ‘the other’, as an opening for the sensuous.
Temporary ecological concerns also upon up reflections concerning the reconfiguration of relationship between the body and the sensitive world. Through his concept of force, Christoph Menke grounds aesthetics in an anthropology of difference, a difference between force and faculty, between human and subject, where aesthetics is defined as a force belonging to the human not the subject. In line with this, genealogical anthropology has become aesthetic anthropology leading behind the subject to man. This opens up reflections on aesthetics in relation to the human as embedded in nature, or aesthetics in relation to the Anthropocene. »
