Law and the arts.
Elective affinities and relationships of tension

Frankfurt am Main : Vittorio Klostermann, 2017, 430 pp.illustrations
(partly color)

ISBN: 9783465042983

This volume documents the outcome of a working group
regarding «Law and the Arts», which was organized by the Käte
Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities «Law as
Culture». The collected contributions discuss the structural relationships
and contradictions of law and the arts with the aim of bringing the spheres
closer to each other again. The plea is therefore that the reciprocal potential
for insight be
better utilized not only through conceptualization, aesthetic reflection, and
sensory appraisals, but also through aesthetic practice. Thus, this volume
takes a look beyond the classical subject matter of law and literature and
incorporates the increasing interest for visual cultures, yet also encourages
new fields of research that relate to the hidden relationship between law and
music as well as the colorfulness of law and law as sculpture.
