Abstract

The situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic has not qualitatively changed our aesthetic experience, but rather intensified certain perceptual habits that had already been in place for quite a long time, highlighting their characteristics. In particular, the relationship between movement and framing and our close familiarity with digital media in the visual aesthetic experience. This aspect has been acknowledged in the museum context, but we are still at the beginning of a path leading to a more conscious implementation of the potential and creative value of an approach to art not only «in presence», but also «at a distance» through electronic devices. The pandemic has shown how radical and unavoidable is the need for beauty and the multiplicity of possible ways to respond to it.
