Faculty for Radical Aesthetics

Faculty (from lat. facultas) means possibility, occasion, but also capacity; in this specific case, the possibility, occasion and capacity to develop aesthetics beyond a philosophical discipline. Radical aesthetics interweave artistic practices, political activism and theory production, transgressing both trivial statements like "Every art is political!" or "Art is never political!" and vague claims of a political paedagogy with artistic means. It is precisely the overlaps and reconfigurations of the political and the artistic which open up a field of transversal practices that potentiate political-aesthetic forms of action, expression and intervention.
