Abstract (English)

Rereading Kant from the perspective of Duchamp’s making modernist art practice the subject of his work, De Duve writes eight essays around the central thesis that aesthetic judgement is now not a question of whether or not something is beautiful but simply whether or not it is art. De Duve’s consideration of the definition of art from this perspective questions the validity of art’s critical function since the project of modernity has been discredited.
