    Anybody Living a Private Life is a Believer in Money. Gertrude Stein, the Great Depression, and the Abstraction of Money.Solveig Daugaard - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (60):26-47.
    The article considers Gertrude Stein’s reflections about the increasing abstraction of economics in response to the Great Depression and Roosevelt’s New Deal in a number of explicitly political pieces from the mid-1930s, including “A Political Series”, and her five brief newspaper commentaries on “money”: ”Money”, “More About Money”, “Still More About Money”, “All About Money”, and “My Last About Money”. The article then relates them to Walter Benjamin’s and Giorgio Agamben’s ideas about the religious implications of the money system that (...)

    Revolution or Diversity? Aesthetic and Political Manifestations of Class in Three Swedish Radical Picturebooks From the 2000s and 2010s. [REVIEW]Kristina Hermansson - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (60):92-115.
    This article explores manifestations of class from a combined aesthetical and political point of view, focusing on a selection of Swedish children’s picture books from 2009 to 2018, in which class differences are made prominent. In this sense, they can be regarded as radical. This study examines how political aspects are intertwined with literary, visual, and multimodal means. The main purpose is to examine how the political and aesthetical merge in the manifestations of class. The publishing of radical picture books (...)

    Money as Frame.Nicholas Huber - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (60):158-174.
    This essay responds to “Money as Art: The Form, the Material, and Capital” by the Marxist economist Costas Lapavitsas with refer-ence to the triple manifestation of crisis in the United States dur-ing the spring months of 2020. By triangulating the role of money in the COVID-19 pandemic, the ensuing mass unemployment, and the historical nationwide revolt in response to the police mur-der of George Floyd predicated on a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill, Nicholas Huber makes a three-part claim. First, that acceptance of (...)

    Sensibility and Semio-Capitalism – a Bodily Experience of Crisis in Ursula Andkjær Olsen’s the Crisis Notebooks.Emma Sofie Brogaard Jespersen - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (60):140-157.
    In The Uprising: On Poetry and Finance, Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi unfolds a political and clinical diagnosis of contemporary society, stating that the crisis we experience today is a permanent state of absent social autonomy and political agency. This crisis is not solely economic but is caused by semio-capitalism impacting all spheres of human life, affecting sensibility in particular—the linguistic and physical-sensuous link between the individual and the world. Taking up the term sensibility as a bodily basis of experience and as (...)

    Spectral Memories: Aesthetic Responses to the Financial Crash in Iceland 2008.Vera Knútsdóttir - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (60):116-139.
    In October 2008, one of the largest bank crashes in history struck Iceland, a country of three hundred and thirty five thousand inhab-itants. The aim of the article is to examine two cultural responses to the crash and the crisis that followed. More precisely, the aim is to analyse how the creation of the haunted house in I Remember You, a crash-horror story by crime writer Yrsa Sigurðardóttir, as well as the spectral half-built houses portrayed by visual artist Guðjón Ketilsson (...)

    Marx Et Co Revisited. Representations of the Economy in Ralf Andtbacka’s Wunderkammer.Kristina Malmio - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (60):72-91.
    The present article studies the representation of economy in Wunderkammer, a collection of poetry by Finland-Swedish author Ralf Andtbacka. Going back to the historical form of cabinets of curiosities, Wunderkammer depicts acts of buying, selling, and collecting. By showing the connectivity of objects and their impact on human subjects, Andtbacka actualizes and deconstructs topics originally initiated by Karl Marx, such as value, fetish, commodifica-tion, and alienation. The portrayal of capitalism, both past and pres-ent, in the book is highly ambivalent. On (...)

    The Right Tools for the Job: The Right Job for Our Tools.Mary Poovey - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (60):10-25.
    This article ponders the questions of why so many literary scholars want to bring literary and economic issues together now, and why it seems so difficult to establish a genuinely cross-disciplinary con-versation.1 Offering two examples of approaches to the intersec-tion of literary and economic issues that privilege methodology over themes, history, or theory—a very brief genealogy of the concept of a national economy and an equally brief analysis of derivatives—the article calls for an ongoing reflection on whether literary and cultural (...)

    Full Automation in its Infancy: The Situationist Avant-Garde Book Fin de Copenhague.Dominique Routhier - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (60):48-71.
    This article discusses Fin de Copenhague, a Situationist book experiment from 1957 by Asger Jorn and Guy Debord. By way of a contextualizing archival study with special attention to Jorn’s contemporaneous book project Pour la forme, the article demonstrates that the Russian avant-garde book was a key influence if also a point of critical departure. On this reading, Fin de Copenhague marks a turn away from the unbridled technological optimism of the historical avant-garde. In its material implications and aesthetic choices, (...)

    The Financial Regime.Joseph Vogl - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (60):175-182.
    Starting from the premise that the financial regime has become a power in and of itself—a fourth, ‘monetative’ power as it were—this essay gives an account of the ascendancy of finance and the shift from geopolitical to geo-economical order, within which there is no democratic legitimacy and no legal accountability and within which a new class conflict also emerges. It goes on to advance five theses on this new financial sovereignty, concluding that sovereign is he, who can transform his risks (...)

    Winckelmann’s Apollo and the Physiognomy of Race.Lasse Hodne - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (59):6-35.
    The taste for classical art that induced museums in the West to acquire masterpieces from ancient Greece and Rome for their collections was stimulated largely by the writings of Johann Joachim Winckelmann. In the past decade, a number of articles have claimed that Winckelmann’s glorification of marble statues representing the white, male body promotes notions of white supremacy. The present article challenges this view by examining theories prevalent in the eighteenth century that affected Winckelmann’s views on race. Through an examination (...)

    Digital Music Use as Ecological Thinking: Metadata and Historicised Listening.Andreas Helles Pedersen - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (59):97-118.
    In claiming that metadata possess the power to put historical awareness into the act of listening, this article examines digital music use as an aesthetic situation driven by potentialities of becoming. Working from a theoretical foundation amalgamating digital music archives and metadata as environments the article discusses Georgina Born’s notion of musical assemblages alongside the concept of virtuality, and by letting these meet the article argues for a musical assemblage built from sensibilities of becoming rather than layers of mediation. The (...)

    The Vertical City: Approaches to the Skyscraper City as Phenomenological Space and Semantic Field.Anders Troelsen - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (59):79-96.
    The article is a kind of “project essay” or “brain storm” concerning skyscraper cities. It proposes different approaches for the study of this subject. Starting with the observation that in Danish traditional houses are lying, whereas skyscrapers are “standing”, different phenomenological and discursive perspectives for the study are sketched. The article also suggests that the analysis of contemporary skyscraper cities can shed new light on more traditional cities in the same way as new media illuminate the characterics of old media.

    Monolith in a Hollow: Paleofuturism and Earth Art in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.Jacob Wamberg - 2020 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 29 (59):36-78.
    This article analyses 2001 in terms of what I term paleofuturism. Fusing deep future and deep past, this cyclical figure reconciles rational machinic intelligence with diverse repressed temporal layers: archaic cultures, the embryonic state of individuals, and bygone biological and geological eras. In 2001, paleofuturism is nourished by Nietzsche’s Übermensch of the future, reborn as a child, and by Jungian ideas of individuation, the reconciliation with the shadow of the collective unconscious that leads to the black cosmos itself. Further paleofuturist (...)
