A New Paradigm Relating Art and Sport

Author: Danny Shorkend

In this article, I outline ways in which sport can be reconsidered as drawing aesthetic and philosophical depth from the rarefied domain of art. I do this by arguing that sport, as an everyday aesthetics, is an extension of art aesthetics and this is given further weight by Gumbrecht’s argument that indeed sport is formally beautiful, drawing on its artistic heritage as such. I offer three basic underpinnings for such a perspective, namely aesthesis, play and empathy. In so doing, the dialectic between art and sport promises a cross-pollination and inter-disciplinary venture that has both theoretical and practical implications.
