When Diving into Uncertainty Makes Sense. The Enactive Aesthetic Experience of Artistic Improvisation

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


How and why does artistic improvisation matter aesthetically? In this paper I will offer a hypothesis for answering this question: artistic improvisation matters aesthetically, because its aesthetic experience specifies the dynamics of the aesthetic engagement with art in an exemplarily enactive way. This depends, I will argue, on improvisation being paradigmatic for human experience as such. Indeed, focusing on the anthropological dimension of improvisation, it should be stressed that, far from being the exception to regulated behavior, improvisation is the way human beings organise their interactive relations with(in) the natural and social environment.
