complexity and involvement in contemporary aesthetics
(2nd Virtual conference of the Society for Aesthetics of Architecture and Visual Arts of Serbia)
The work of the Serbian Society for Aesthetics of Architecture and Visual Arts for the second time presents itself to the public by a thematic block prepared for SAJ. In the context of the Society work there were developed the formats of disciplinary discourses of architecture and visual arts, interdisciplinary studies of various architectural and artistic fields, and transdisciplinary and transcultural mapping of potential areas and contexts for research of the applied aesthetic theory. The applied aesthetics and applied philosophy were synchronously developed by means of potential humanities and social scientific disciplines as an open and problem solving theoretical practice of the research of discourse on architecture and the arts.
The thematic block Complexity and Involvement in Contemporary Aesthetics is the result of the virtual conference within which context it is debated about the issue of contemporary aesthetic and philosophy of architecture, visual/performative arts and critical practice at the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century. Contemporary complexities and involvements are indicated as essential accessing problem units. It concerns the complexity of the discourse on aesthetics, however, also the architectural and artistic manifestations which these discourses relate to. Involvement is seen in modalities of communication, action and exchange both within the field of architecture and visual arts, as also within theorizing of contemporary applied aesthetics, applied philosophy or scientific specializations. In this context the interdisciplinarity is understood as movement between defined disciplines which are brought into epistemological correlation, and transdiscipliniraty is understood as „nomadic movement“ and „transitory-existence“ in various disciplines and disciplinary contexts.
