Ă„sthetische Theorie - Theodor W. Adorno

This picture was taken in Parc de la Villette, Paris, May 2008.

Adorno was a German-born international sociologist, philosopher, musicologist, and composer.
Aesthetic Theory (English title) was first published in German in 1970.

"The dual nature of artworks as autonomous structures and social phenomena results in oscillating criteria: Autonomous works provoke the verdict of social indifference and ultimately of being criminally reactionary; conversely, works that make socially univocal discursive judgments thereby negate art as well as themselves."
