Transdisziplinäre Perspektiven
Die Reihe „Ästhetische Praxis“ widmet sich der Untersuchung von Praxis-Dimensionen der Künste aus transdisziplinärer Perspektive, aber auch der Erforschung alltäglicher ästhetischer Praktiken. Thematisiert werden soll, wie sich Kunstwerke als Manifestationen von Praktiken, etwa von Übungen, Proben, Improvisationen, Schreibprozessen, Akten des Skizzierens oder Entwerfens, verstehen lassen. Diese Praktiken können darüber hinaus in ihrem jeweiligen ästhetischen Eigenwert betrachtet sowie in Kontexten jenseits der Kunstwelt erforscht werden. Weitere Schwerpunkte bilden Arbeiten zu ästhetischen Praktiken im Kontext einer postkolonialen Ästhetik sowie tätigkeitstheoretische Untersuchungen zum Verhältnis von Handeln, Praxis und ästhetischer Praxis, die die aktuelle praxeologische Wende in den Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften um eine ästhetische Perspektive ergänzen.

The series “Aesthetic Practice” is dedicated to the investigation of practice dimensions of the arts from a transdisciplinary perspective, but also to the exploration of everyday aesthetic practices.It will address how works of art can be understood as manifestations of practices, such as exercises, rehearsals, improvisations, writing processes, acts of sketching or designing. These practices can furthermore be considered in their eespective aesthetic intrinsic value as well as explored in contexts beyond the art world. Other focal points include work on aesthetic practices in the context of a postcolonial aesthetics as well as activity-theoretical investigations of the relationship between action, practice, and aesthetic practice, which complement the current praxeological turn in the humanities and social sciences with an aesthetic perspective.

What makes an image offensive? — This question is addressed in this volume. It explores tensions and debates about offensive images and performative practices in various settings in and beyond Europe.
Its basic premise is that a deeper understanding of what is at stake in these tensions and debates calls for a multidisciplinary conversation. The authors focus on images that appear to trigger strongly negative reactions; images that are perceived as insulting or offensive; those subject to taboos and restrictions; or those that are condemned as blasphemous. In light of recurrent acts of violence leveled against images and symbols in the contemporary, globally entangled world, addressing instances of “icono-clash” (Bruno Latour) from a new post-secular, global perspective has become a matter of urgency.
Topographies of Artistic Mobility in Europe and Asia
While recent scholarship dealt with the economic and political historio-graphies of road systems, this book focuses on routes as stimuli of cultural transfer and artistic production.
Framed in the historiography of longue durée, routes may be addressed as trajectories that cut across cultural geographies and periodizations. With focus on the early modern period, the volume foregrounds an unprecedented expansion and transformation of route-networks. New combinations of transcontinental routes profoundly affected cultural topographies and symbolic paradigms. The rise of Asian and European port cities as nodes of maritime systems and prosperous cultural contact zones is closely linked to these shifts; routes, hubs, and the fabrication of collective imaginations about them therefore constitute the central themes of this book.
