Downey, Anthony. "Towards a Politics of (Relational) Aesthetics." Third Text, vol 21, issue 3 (May 2007) 267-275.

  • The aesthetic criteria used to interpret art as a practice have changed radically since the 1960s. To note as much is to observe a truism: the idea (or should that be the ideal) of a universalist aesthetic point of reverence, or even a notion of aesthetics as a nominal interpretive baseline, has been discursively displaced by identitarian, theoretical, political, economic, ethical and social interventions. And yet aesthetics as a topic, far from fading into a minor role, has become something of a notional cornerstone in recent discussions about contemporary art. (p. 267)
