Critical Art, Critical Sense, and Receptivity

85 - 2018

This essay examines critical thinking in relation to the experience of art. My argument specifically addresses a problem that occurs when the emancipatory potential of critical thinking is subject to a general ethical requirement that traverses the whole field of art, from our experience of artworks to the discourse in which we participate. The experience thus risks conforming to an agreed critical attitude. Instead, I propose a receptivity that integrates a more supple critical approach, adapted to the singularity of each situation.
[Translated from the French by Louise Ashcroft]
