Estetica applicata

Andrea Mecacci

Abstract


The essay has the aim to analyze the brief history of applied aesthetics from the arts and crafts theories to the everyday aestheticization of postmodernism: the key role of form and function, the problem of ornament, the social implications of commodities, the object value system, objects as simulacra. Is it possible to go beyond these categories? Are they conceptual or just historical categories?

Keywords


Applied aesthetics; Arts and crafts; Design; Industrial aesthetics; Aestheticization
