English Abstract

The need for an ethical way of life, for a good life, which is understood to be a beautiful, active and political life, seems to remain. Yet today, aren‘t we forced to become "virtuosi" who must make use of our bodies, our senses, all our talents and gifts including linguistic, creative ability in order to survive the globalized, neoliberal competition? In the face of globalization and digitalization as well as the financial and government debt crisis and the challenges arising from them, Schiller‘s "aesthetic education" is extremely topical, above all his demand for playful communication between reason and experience and the question of cultural education. What would an "update" of aesthetic education for adult education look like? This issue of the Austrian Open Access Journal on Adult Education (Magazin - Meb in German) is a collection of articles on aesthetic education, aesthetic experience and aesthetic perception in theory and practice, in art and music that reveal a great critical and emancipatory potential. Is creativity only experienced in the sense of a strict capitalistic and rationalistic reduction of the idea of education? Is art, understood as a critical examination of the present, a catalyst for personality development and emancipation today? This article presents and examines the emancipative possibilities of gamification, intergenerational cultural communication in aesthetic and feminist action, political and participative theatre work, research on the stage, participative development of digital learning media and models for aesthetic learning experiences. The good and the beautiful, revisited? (Ed.)
