For Readers

About the Journal:

Evental Aesthetics is an international, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to philosophical perspectives on aesthetic practices and experiences. Publishing about three issues a year, the journal is devoted to philosophical questions concerning every form of art as well as aesthetic matters from beyond the artworld. We welcome perspectives from every philosophical tradition, experimental and creative approaches, and authors from every discipline.

This publication is entirely independent: we are unaffiliated with any institution, therefore unimpeded by political or financial agendas. As a non-profit organization, we operate completely without funding or advertising.

All submissions undergo rigorous, anonymous peer review by members of the Editorial Board. Articles selected for publication incur absolutely no fees: we do not charge a penny to our authors or readers.

Why “Evental” Aesthetics? An event, an occurrence, is an alteration to the current situation. That which is evental instigates change. We believe that aesthetic ideas can lead to changes in, at the very least, points of view.
