View: 1319Peter Weiss’ project of an “aesthetics of resistance” positions the work of art against its ideological uses, following theories of the avant-garde. This study broadens the discussions around the “aesthetics of resistance” by reading the novel “Fluchtpunkt” as an essential early stage of a theory of aesthetics that combines a poetics of memory with an advanced theory of modernist aesthetics.
