We will address how the aesthetic articulates minority discourse, complicating the relations among art, representation, ethics, and politics. Bringing together aesthetic theories and philosophies with minority discourse reinvigorates difference as such and provides a means of engagement with practices that produce a richer understanding of life, culture, and politics.
