Abstract:   (12130 Views)

Adorno is the creator of a special kind of aesthetics that for its attention to dissonance, we can name it Difference Aesthetics. This aesthetics has been created based on historical concept of Mimesis in philosophy of art but against platonic idea of it. Adorno emphasizes on expressive aspect of Mimesis. That sort of art that is based on this idea becomes an independent art that gets free of constraints of society.
An independent art that is not iterator of the natural conditions (facts), can expand the understanding art of as a plural event and makes it possible for addressee to contemplate in work of art deeply. The contemplation that is created by this deep thought in addressee’s mind, changes his consciousness fundamentally, and propels him to transit himself to an undetermined existence. In other hand, independent art that itself is a relief, creates relief.
