By Cecilia Sjöholm

Cecilia Sjöholm reads Hannah Arendt as a thinker of the senses, grappling with questions of imaginative and prescient, listening to, and contact even in her political paintings. developing an Arendtian idea of aesthetics from the philosopher’s fragmentary writings on artwork and belief, Sjöholm starts off a colourful new bankruptcy in Arendt scholarship that expands her relevance for modern philosophers. Arendt wrote thoughtfully in regards to the position of sensibility and aesthetic judgment in political lifestyles and at the strength of artwork to counterpoint human adventure. Sjöholm attracts a transparent line from Arendt’s attention of those topics to her reflections on aesthetic encounters and the artworks pointed out in her released writings and kept between her memorabilia. This gentle attempt permits Sjöholm to revisit Arendt’s political strategies of freedom, plurality, and judgment from a cultured standpoint and comprise Arendt’s perception into present discussions of literature, song, theater, and visible artwork. although Arendt didn't explicitly define an aesthetics, Sjöholm’s paintings substantively comprises her viewpoint into modern reckonings with radical politics and their dating to art.
