Alr eady in classical antiquity\, politicians and thinkers observed the profou nd influence of the self-governing collective in shaping individual sensib ilities\; the modern democratic mechanism of representation increases and foregrounds such structural complexity\, seeing the self-actualization of the demos and selection of political representatives via aesthetic media a nd strategies. Indeed\, the aesthetic dimensions reveal modern democracies to be life-forms. That is\, democracies reach deep into the fabric of lif e\, cultivating certain modes of conduct\, forms of communication\, artist ic practices\, individual as well as collective forms of experience – al l of which intertwine and shape the lives of those involved.\nThe internat ional graduate conference »The Aesthetics of Democratic Life-Forms« thus seeks to understand aesthetics not as a disparate\, hostile sphere in rel ation to democracy – an assumption which posits the aestheticization of politics to be inherently anti-democratic –\, nor as a structurally anal ogous foil for democratic politics. Rather\, this conference hopes to shed light on how aesthetic practices and phenomena provide insight into democ ratic life-forms\, as well as how political practices and discussions impl icate modes of conduct whose aesthetic dimensions lend themselves to produ ctive analysis.\nKeynotes and invited speakers include Steffen Andrae\, Su san Buck-Morss\, Eva-Maria Ciesla\, Dorothea Douglas\, Anne Eusterschulte\ , Sören Fiedler\, Rainer Forst\, Jason Frank\, Daniel Hartley\, Dominik H erold\, Rob Horning\, Martin Jay\, Antje Krause-Wahl\, Bianca Laliberté\, Sandra Laugier\, Leonie Licht\, Sophie Loidolt\, Jaka Lombar\, Patchen Ma rkell\, Sabine Müller\, Claudia Young-joo Park\, Francesca Raimondi\, Mar tin Renz\, Leonhard Riep\, Samuel Rosenblum\, William Ross\, Martin Saar\, Jochen Schuff\, Julius Schwarzwälder\, Samu/elle Striewski\, Nathan Tayl or\, Katrin Trüstedt\, Johannes Völz\, Franziska Wildt\, Johanna Wurz\, a.o.\nThe conference is organized by the university initiative Ästhetik d emokratischer Lebensformen in collaboration with the Institute for Social Research\, the Cluster Initiative ConTrust at the Research Institute Norma tive Orders\, and Netzwerk Paulskirche\, as well as the planned Graduierte nkolleg »Ästhetik der Demokratie« and the project »Democratic Vistas: Reflections on the Atlantic World« at the Forschungskolleg Humanwissensch aften.\nThe conference will be held in english.
