Bloomsbury Contemporary Aesthetics Case Studies

This collection of illustrated case studies, exclusively commissioned for Bloomsbury Contemporary Aesthetics, has been designed to introduce readers to core questions about taste, judgement, and the nature of art. Drawing on an array of objects, including sculptures, installation art, food, nature, and the human body, each case study centres on a single artwork or familiar object to open the door to new ways of thinking about art, creativity, and beauty.
