In recent years, debates surrounding the concept of art have focused in particular on installation art, as its diverse manifestations have proven to be incompatible with the modern idea of aesthetic autonomy. Juliane Rebentisch, author of the newly translated Aesthetics of Installation Art (Sternberg Press, 2012), asserts that installation art does not, as is often assumed, dispute aesthetic autonomy per se, and rather should be understood as calling for a fundamental revision of this very concept. Rebentisch thus proposes a new understanding of art as well as of its ethical and political dimension. 

Juliane Rebentisch is a Berlin-based philosopher, whose work focuses on aesthetics, ethics, and political philosophy. She teaches at Hochschule für Gestaltung, Offenbach am Main, and is the coeditor of WestEnd: Neue Zeitschrift für Sozialforschung. She has published numerous essays and books, including Ästhetik der Installation (Suhrkamp, 2003), Kreation und Depression: Freiheit im gegenwärtigen Kapitalismus (coedited with Christoph Menke, Kadmos, 2010), and Die Kunst der Freiheit: Zur Dialektik demokratischer Existenz (Suhrkamp, 2012).
