    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Can autonomy be a means to reinforce the public relevance of art and culture? Open 23 examines this question and discusses new forms and meanings of autonomy for artistic and cultural practice. In this time of ideological and political crises, in which people and things are increasingly thrown back on their own resources, autonomy is becoming attractive again. But how does autonomy, the wish to take matters into one’s own hands and have significance independent of old structures, relate to the call for engagement and performativity? This issue, made in collaboration with Sven Lütticken, examines autonomy from the standpoints of art, art history, philosophy, political theory and cultural criticism, and attempts to escape the limitations of thinking in terms of engagement on the one hand and autonomy on the other.
