Aesthetic political representation urges us to realize that ‘the representative has autonomy with regard to the people represented’ but autonomy then is not an excuse to abandon one’s responsibility. Aesthetic autonomy requires cultivation of ‘disinterestedness’ on the part of actions which is not indifference. To have disinterestedness, that is, to have comportment towards the beautiful that is devoid of all ulterior reference to use – requires a kind of aesthetic commitment; it is the liberation of ourselves for the release of what has proper worth only in itself.
- Disinterestedness is different from indifference as the former means a non-subjective evaluation of things which is what constitutes aesthetic political representation.
- Aesthetic political representation advocates autonomy for the representatives manifested through disinterestedness which itself is different from indifference.
- Disinterestedness, as distinct from indifference, is the basis of political representation.
- Aesthetic political representation advocates autonomy for the representatives drawing from disinterestedness, which itself is different from indifference.
