Ac­cor­ding to the re­sur­gent in­te­rest in mat­ters aes­t­he­ti­cal across the cul­tu­ral and so­ci­al sci­en­ces, the­re is a need to en­ga­ge, or re-en­ga­ge, with aes­t­he­tic con­cepts and sen­si­bi­li­ties to ex­plo­re the con­tem­pora­ry pro­duc­tion of the so­ci­al. This de­ve­lop­ment is ba­sed on re­con­side­ring aes­t­he­tics as ais­the­sis, in the sen­se of an in­tert­wi­ned dou­ble of sen­se per­cep­ti­on and af­fec­tivi­ty, i.e. a sub­ject’s emo­tio­nal in­vol­ve­ment in af­fec­tive at­mo­s­phe­res. My talk will out­li­ne the con­tours of an un­der­stan­ding of or­ga­niza­t­i­on, or ra­ther forms and pro­ces­ses of or­ga­ni­zing, as the on­go­ing enact­ment of what ma­kes sen­se and what can be sen­s­ed. Sin­ce what can be sen­s­ed, and thus what ma­kes sen­se, seems in­cre­a­sin­gly con­di­tio­ned by the ubi­qui­ty and per­va­siven­ess of di­gi­tal me­dia, re­con­side­ring the aes­t­he­tics of or­ga­niza­t­i­on of­fers a po­ten­ti­al­ly ent­i­cing mee­ting of me­dia and or­ga­niza­t­i­on theo­ry.

Timon Beyes is Pro­fes­sor of De­sign, In­no­va­ti­on and Aes­t­he­tics at the De­part­ment of Ma­nage­ment, Po­li­tics and Phi­lo­so­phy at Copen­ha­gen Busi­ness School, and a Vi­sit­ing Pro­fes­sor at the In­sti­tu­te for the Cul­tu­re and Aes­t­he­tics of Di­gi­tal Me­dia (ICAM) at Leu­pha­na. He has a back­ground in So­cio­lo­gy and Ma­nage­ment Stu­dies and has con­duc­ted his doc­to­ral and post-doc­to­ral re­se­arch at the In­sti­tu­te of So­cio­lo­gy and the School of Hu­ma­nities and So­ci­al Sci­en­ces, Uni­ver­si­ty of St. Gal­len, Swit­z­er­land. His re­se­arch fo­cu­ses on pro­ces­ses of or­ga­niza­t­i­on in the con­text of ur­ban cul­tu­re, me­dia and the arts. Ti­mon Beyes is one of the di­rec­tors of the Digital Cultures Research Lab (DCRL).
