This year's lectures, titled
The Aesthetic Supermarket
will be delivered by
Professor Peter Szendy.

What is art? Is it an aesthetic experience for the few or a mass activity to change the world? For Peter Szendy, this is a false dilemma. In our global economy the experience of art, he argues, is parallel to the workings of the market. Art trades images, the market trades commodities. In the aesthetic supermarket of our day both art and the market rely on exchange to realize their aims.
