PART3 OF THE TRILOGY "DIE AESTHETIK DER HERRSCHAFTSFREIHEIT".“Art holds a unity that history does not” – it is not withoutgood reason that this slogan is preposed to the third part of thetrilogy. Art should not be confused with reality (Brecht) and thusROME preserve the necessary critical distance from the subjectwithout sinking into formlessness. At the same time they succeedequally in illustrating the warm-heartedness of their protagonistsand demonstrating the unity of art and the struggle for freedom. FromPlato to Nietzsche or Marx, all innovators mistrusted art, eventhough it is inseparably connected to revolt, because artists alsowant to create the world anew. AUFGABE formulates the possibility ofa higher set of ethics beyond the current economic system; ethics,whose fundamental principles are those of generosity and universalfreedom. It is the appeal for the cultivation of life-affirming,moral and life-enhancing, aesthetic values. To turn one’s own lifeinto a work of art, to give yourself to this work: that is thedesired stance. As Conrad expressed it: the objective of the artistis to see that justice is done to the invisible universe. This isexactly what Jerome Reuter has done here. “The way everything is atthe moment, I say, for the intellectual and cultured person tohaughtily look down upon the social and the socio-political realms isan erroneous approach which is contrary to life. The political andthe social are part of the human.” – Thomas Mann
