Criticism of Measure: God and the Naked Woman
Benoît Maire

Aesthetics of Differends, section 1, detail, photo credit: MNAM-Centre Pompidou

Since 2008 Benoît Maire has started writing a manual of aesthetics where images, objects and writing take form to bring forth some of contemporary aesthetics’ main issues. Starting from the differend (insurmountable conflict) between saying and seeing, Benoît Maire works in an in-between where art and philosophy merge into a practical use where forms spread out and surpass one another. Neither philosophy, nor art, the Aesthetics of Differends looks to corrupt classical formats by the experimental use of theory. This reading in Zurich will be based on the relationship between liberalism, nudity, pleasure and language to propose a criticism of measure: the work and thoughts of Manet, Masacio, God, Perry Anderson, Catherine Malabou, Jean-François Lyotard, Bruno Bostells and Judith Butler will notably be at stake.
