Aesthetic Violence in the 20th C. and Beyond

How does art respond to the tremendous pace of the world's violence? More
than merely sublimating or ameliorating trauma, art documents the physical
and psychological damage wreaked by social, political, cultural or personal
violence. Damaged life yields a damaged art, the distortions of which are
crucial in capturing the specific ramifications of violence. Art in the
face of war must suffer this distortion; consider the writings of Levi,
Antelme, Celan, Beckett, and O'Brien, among many others. The documentary of
aesthetic violence runs through work as various as art on feminism, racism,
and ranges from group to personal violence.
