The ART Reading Group is meant as a meeting place for students, PhD students and scholars with different backgrounds and as an opportunity for study, learning and discussion on the international debates in aesthetics. Every meeting will be two hours long and will be guided by a member of the ART board. The meetings will be held in presence, but the possibility of online participation via WebEx will always be provided.

The in-presence attendance is free. To participate online, please e-mail Dr. Alberto Martinengo (

We are reading the book: Aesthetic Disinterestedness. Art, Experience, and the Self by Thomas Hilger (Routledge 2017).
