Can Beauty Still Save the World?

Beauty was once an intrinsic value used to describe the ultimate ambition for what humanity could be: the good life was a beautiful life. Today, beauty’s deeper meaning seems lost to all but a handful of philosophers and art historians.

This public Living Room Session called for a new aesthetic, emotional, and ethical movement to place beauty back at the center of our lives. With Candida Gertler, co-founder of the Outset Contemporary Art Fund and theVOV; Udo Kittelmann, former director of the Nationalgalerie in Berlin and artistic director of the Museum Frieder Burda; Shakti Maira, author of The Promise of Beauty and Why It Matters; Corinne Loperfido, founder of the feminist interactive arts group Pussy Power House and creator of Meow Wolf's "Trash Temple;" Marsha Meredith, former creative director at Aesop; and as special guest multi-instrumentalist, singer, and composer Peter Broderick.

Hosted by Tim Leberecht, co-founder of the House of Beautiful Business, and Morgwn Rimel, head of brand and creative, House of Beautiful Business.
