About the Author

Walead Beshty is a British-born artist and writer based in Los Angeles. He is a regular contributor to Texte zur Kunst and Afterall, and is Associate Professor at Art Center College of Art and Design, Pasadena.


'Aesthetics are not necessarily ethical - something can be beautiful and at the same time evil - but this volume persuasively argues that there can be an aestheticism of ethics. Once the fiction of artistic autonomy has been abandoned and an artwork's network of relationships to the world becomes clear, a new aesthetic 'feeling' is possible: one that is as palpable and pervasive as the sublime.' - Stan Douglas Artist.
