Abstract

Today’s diffusion of aesthetic processes parallels a sense of unsuitability affecting the canonical model to which we used to attribute the whole of the aesthetic phenomenon: the reference to Great Art as something that is distinguished by its exceptionality. Contemporaneity abolishes this separation since nowadays the aesthetic intervenes in the continual pursuit of moments of gratification. How can aesthetics get to know this new context and how does this affect art? This paper addresses related issues (the options of the so-called Everyday Aesthetics; the different layers of aestheticization; new forms of art production and fruition) in order to justify aesthetic practices on an “anthropological" basis. In this sense, the aesthetic field proves to be a form of life.
