About this book

Ten leading commentators explore the interfaces between art and aesthetics in dialogue with a philosophical text (Theodor Adorno's draft introduction to Aesthetic Theory ), a piece of literary writing (Franz Kafka's A Report to an Academy ), and a major contemporary painting (Gerhard Richter's Betty , 1988).
