The Power of JudgmentA Debate on Aesthetic Critique

 - The Power of Judgment
The Power of Judgment both attests to the importance of judgment in art criticism and argues against its determining verdicts. Comprised of a lecture by Christoph Menke and two respective responses to it by Daniel Loick and Isabelle Graw, this book brings together a dialogue on judgment originally begun at the Institut für Kunstkritik, Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main.
“Pointing to the necessity of an aesthetic judgment that produces controversy and dissent, The Power of Judgment deliberately takes up a proposition that can be debated.”
Edited by Daniel Birnbaum and Isabelle Graw.
Texts by Daniel Loick, Isabelle Graw and Christoph Menke.
