What does it mean to speak of artistic autonomy at a time when art is fully commercialised and aesthetics has become the guiding principle of economic production and policymaking? This book by Sebastian Olma takes a fresh look at this question by summoning three heroes of the aesthetic revolution to confront the challenges faced by artistic practice today. Turning Kant into a campaigner for the Anthropocene, Schiller into a creative entrepreneur, and Schelling into a political activist, Olma lays the groundwork for a critique that identifies “the contemporary” itself as contemporary art’s greatest challenge in the struggle to reinvent its autonomy and regain its relevance to society.
