    Aesthetics, Theatricality and Performativity: An Introduction.Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis - 2019 - Aisthesis. Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 12 (1):115-122.
    Contemporary theatre allows for a script, a scenario, that is exclusively visual. If action is no longer supported by dialogue, this does not mean that it will disappear. It will undoubtedly return in gestural exchange and in a temporality that is expansive or contracted and condensed. Action becomes an opaque enigma. The interpretation of performative action is a journey that the spectator undertakes in a foreign country, where we are forced to learn a new language. It remains to be seen (...)

    Presentazione.Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis, Rita Messori & Salvatore Tedesco - 2014 - Aisthesis: Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 7 (2):3-5.
    Nature doesn’t seem reducible to rigid systems and classifications. Although resorting to metaphors may give rise to contradictions, it allows the elaboration of explanatory models which help us to organize thought and to find orientation in the natural world. Giving form through metaphors stands for seeking the way by which mankind looks for both solutions and new configurations to face nature’s enigmas. The creation of morphological and/or evolutionary metaphors framed in a schematic way what Hugo called “man’s groping in the (...)

    Dalla “scala” al “piano”. Appunti per un’indagine interpretativa.Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis - 2014 - Aisthesis: Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 7 (2):7-24.
    During the Eighteenth Century – from Bonnet to Robinet, from Maupertuis to Diderot, and up to Buffon – several new topics of discussion were developed concerning materialism, the critique to finalism, the idea of nature as continuous metamorphosis , the advocacy of providentialism, or, to the contrary, of the role of chaos. As a result, scales, prototypes and types have been employed as interpretative hypotheses influencing the main choices and lines of research. In this regard, however, Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire's work (...)

    Foreword.Fabrizio Desideri & Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis - 2018 - Aisthesis. Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 11 (2):3-6.
    From picture to photography and back. Tableau vivants, in their gestural synthetic dimension, represent for Diderot the apex of expression that the image can make explicit. Nothing closer to Wall’s poetics. His works show outstanding attention to detail: from scenic design to protagonists’ costumes, from light to actors’ action. And the result is exactly what Diderot saw in the eyes of people observing Chardin’s art: imagination at work.

    Hors-champ de l’estétique : dans la photographie.Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis - 2021 - Lebenswelt. Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 16.
    The application of financial market criteria to the art world has profoundly changed the reception of works of art. It is channelled through a private circuit of auction houses, galleries and collections, which monopolise the modalities of exhibition to the public and arbitrarily select works and artists, often conforming the taste of the spectators essentially to market criteria. This phenomenon is particularly important in the case of photography, which still remains, especially in some countries, on the fringes of the cultural (...)

    La nascita della teratologia.Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis - 2021 - Studi di Estetica 20.
    At the beginning of the 9th century, anatomists aimed at detaching themselves from a mere classifying and descriptive approach to establish a philosophic science studying form patterns and relationships. Organic forms were part of a research program, grounded on how their components were related from a structuralist perspective, as it is for Étienne and Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, founders of teratology. The monster was a subject freed from superstition and subjected to the gaze of the philosopher of nature who, in analyzing (...)

    L’importanza di sbagliare. L’educazione all’errore in Denis Diderot.Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis - 2021 - Studi di Estetica 19.
    Art, evading the principle of utility, opens up to error. A profitable mistake if it is not stubborn. The artist cautiously accesses the logic of the production of nature which is characterized by continuous mutability. Therefore, “the history of man’s errors does him as much honour as the history of his discoveries”. Recalling the thought of Jean-Baptiste Du Bos, who debates the importance of mistakes that painters and poets can make against their own rules, the essay investigates Denis Diderot’s thought, (...)
