UTOPIA IN BLACK. THE NEGATIVE AESTHETICS OF ADORNO AND THE CONTEMPORARY BLACK ART
Languages of publication
Black is the colour of the negative aesthetics of Adorno, and the true of our time. The aesthetics that thinks the radical art of our time, a black art, can only be a black aesthetics. The radical contemporary art is black art, and it is so because according to the aesthetic principle that constitutes the work of art as such - the spirit understood as mimesis - this one, the work of art, is writing of a blackened historical reality. What Adorno tries with black art is to return to art its right to exist after Auschwitz, in a discoloured world. But black art, as alive conscience of pain, as truth of the real, is already salvation, hope, utopia.
