The Aesthetics of War

The Carlsberg Foundation’s Distinguished Associate Professor Fellowships

What

In light of the transformation of warfare in the 21st century, an aesthetic perspective on its new forms seems more relevant than ever.

Why

In recent years aesthetics has increasingly been militarized. Fictions of various kinds have come to pervade warfare. But what role do they play? We will examine this development and build an aesthetic framework in order to give us a better understanding of late modern warfare.

How

We will examine both the collaboration between military, cultural, and academic institutions and the artworks who have reacted to the militarization of aesthetics.
