Sociologist Pascal Gielen and curator Niels Van Tomme invited a number of artists and theorists to reflect on new futures for the notion and practice of justice. The book offers views on the ways in which works of art may confront, and potentially redirect, social and political narratives through “aesthetic justice”. Using analyses of contemporary works that challenge the social, political or economic status quo, as well as interviews with artists and critical reflections, it suggests alternatives for a more just future through a variety of artistic contexts – novel modes that can shape the emotionally charged concept of justice, and eventually transform it.
