The author contributed to the MOCA catalogue, R.H. Quaytman Morning: Chapter 30.

This study of the philosophical underpinnings of installation art brilliantly reevaluates the concept of aesthetic autonomy as the very condition of the possibility of art itself, writes internationally prominent art historian Tom Holert. Writer Juliane Rebentisch s captivating readings of Martin Heidegger, Theodor W. Adorno, Clement Greenberg, Rosalind E.Krauss, Jacques Derrida, Stanley Cavell and other luminaries push debates about site specificity and Institutional Critique to argue that aesthetic autonomy and the public sphere in installation art are, in fact, inseparable. This indispensible book will rejuvenate and irrevocably change debates about the nature of aesthetic experience, the autonomy of art, modernism and postmodernism, and, through all of these, about installation art.
