Jos de Mul and Renée van de Vall (eds.) Gimme Shelter: Global Discourses in Aesthetics. Proceedings of an international symposium, organized by the Dutch Aesthetic Federation and the International Association of Aesthetics. Amsterdam, October 8-10, 2009.

Gimme Shelter. Global discourses in aesthetics contains a series of reflections on the impact of globalization on the arts and the aesthetic reflection on the arts. The authors – fifteen distinguished  aestheticians from all over the world -   discuss a variety of aesthetic questions brought forth by the aforementioned process of globalization. How do artistic practices and aesthetic experiences change in response to these developments? How should we articulate these changes on the theoretical level? When reflections on the significance of art and aesthetic experiences can no longer pretend to be universal, is it still possible to lay claim to  a wider validity than merely that of one’s own particular culture? What type of vocabulary allows for mutual – dialogical or even polylogical – exchanges and understandings when different traditions meet, without obliterating local differences? Is there a possibility for a creative re-description of globalization? And is there a meaning of ‘the global’ that cannot be reduced to universalism and unification? Can we seek shelter in a legitimate way?

 

SANART Association for Aesthetics and Visual Culture was founded in 1991 with the aim to develop the philosophical and discursive background to artistic practice and the promotion of Aesthetics in Turkey. Since 1992 it has organized many international symposia inviting both accomplished artists and scholars in aesthetics, art and architecture. Each symposia is accompanied by related artistic events, exhibitions and performances. The 1992 ‘Identity, Marginality and Space’ Symposium hosted a CoBrA exhibition at the National Museum in Ankara as well as Japanese ceramics and South American painting shows. Ever since many similar artistic events and conferences have been organized including the 2007 International Congress of Aesthetics at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara which was attended by more than 400 participants. Many of these activities have been recorded in bilingual publications. SANART today has 90 active members. From 1992 to 2010 Jale Erzen acted as the President, since 2010 the president is Cana Bilsel.
