The articles in this book discuss the notion of quality from a variety of perspectives.

How is value negotiated in the arts and culture? What is quality? And what does it entail to talk about qualiti in an artistic and cultural context?

The ten articles in Contested Qualities discuss such questions from a variety of perpectives. They refleect on the conceptual and historical background for the discussion about quality, they analyse quality from the perspective of critical theory, and they raise the question: On which grounds - if common grounds can be found - is aesthetic and cultural value evaluated today?
