  1. Interpreting AI-Generated Art: Arthur Danto’s Perspective on Intention, Authorship, and Creative Traditions in the Age of Artificial Intelligence.Raquel Cascales - 2023 - Polish Journal of Aesthetics 71 (4):17-29.
    Arthur C. Danto did not live to witness the proliferation of AI in artistic creation. However, his philosophy of art offers key ideas about art that can provide an interesting perspective on artwork generated by artificial intelligence (AI). In this article, I analyze how his ideas about contemporary art, intention, interpretation, and authorship could be applied to the ongoing debate about AI and artistic creation. At the same time, it is also interesting to consider whether the incorporation of AI into (...)

  2. Aesthetic Deep Time Experiences of Temporal Sublime Nature.Stephanie Schuster - 2023 - Polish Journal of Aesthetics 69 (2-3):1-15.
    Deep time, encompassing the expansive temporal scale of Earth’s and the universe’s history, bears the potential of alienation due to its immensity. However, this estrangement can be mitigated through aesthetic appreciation of the temporal sublime in nature, as found in geological landscapes, ancient forests, and the starry sky. This paper aims to elucidate aesthetic deep time experiences and their significance. It posits that aesthetic resonance with the awe-inspiring atmosphere of ancient and enduring natural environments fosters an elevating yet humble feeling (...)

  3. Epistemic Injustice and the Body in Photography.Marta Maliszewska - 2023 - Polish Journal of Aesthetics 68:89-99.
    This paper analyzes the role of the viewers of photographs of violence. The main argument is that due to the characteristic of the medium, both the photographer and the photographed subjects shape the image. The customary overlooking of the photographed subjects’ agency is conceptualized as epistemic injustice first committed by the photographer and then by the viewer. A method of interpreting war photographs influenced by critical fabulation and listening to images is proposed to overcome it. Even though every case of (...)

    Forgetful and Drowsy: The Affective Atmospheres in Contemporary Latvian Photography.Jana Kukaine & Janis Taurens - 2023 - Polish Journal of Aesthetics 68:57-74.
    In the article, we advance the notion of an affective atmosphere for analyzing the works of art by two contemporary Latvian photographers—Aija Bley (b. 1967) and Arnis Balčus (b. 1978). The spatial relations of bodies and environments and the photographed sub- jects’ facial expressions and postures negotiate a sense of postsocialist affectivity that we describe as forgetful and drowsy. In the selected images, the affective atmospheres enact the ambiguities of the Soviet legacies, along with the challenges of neoliberal rationality affecting (...)

    Feeling Historical: Postsocialist Affect in Estonian Fiction.Raili Marling - 2023 - Polish Journal of Aesthetics 68:75-87.
    In this article, building on the work of Lauren Berlant (2008, 2022) and Sara Ahmed (2004, 2010), I ask what it means to feel historical in the context of today’s pervasive crisis [of] ordinariness, whether it is possible to talk about a particular postsocialist affect, and what aesthetic forms the affect takes in fiction. The analysis of two Estonian texts will follow the theoretical discussion: Tõnu Õnnepalu’s novel Border State (1993) and Maarja Kangro’s story collection Õismäe ajamasin (2021). -/- Lauren (...)
