Kit aesthetics

Kit aesthetics
Publication Date 2004
Abstract There is more to kits than a new (poor) reason for making you buy the same old product in a new package. Karl Hansson mediates on the kit phenomenon, and connects it to the haptic, the touch experiences long neglected by the high-brow visual arts. He examines the position of the kit in art movements as Fluxus, and offers new perspectives as to why so many contemporary artists invite the audience to touch their works. There might be a revolution of the touch, following the visual turn.
