Day 16: On Violence

What is it about the violence aesthetic that makes people move? Or, to be put it in a better question, why is violence an aesthetic category?

I probably have to think about it more but it seems like this: the world is a violent place. Violence is a part of most of our worlds unless you are living in some privileged position. Yet, or maybe because of this, violence as an aesthetic comes from this privileged position. Because violence as such is a banal manifestation. It is devoid of categories. Violence as an aesthetic as a cynical response to the world is a Bret Eason Ellis style indifference. No one has the time for that, really ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
