The volume “Visualizing Law and Authority. Essays on Legal Aesthetics” brings together revised papers from the international conference “Law and the Image”, held in Stockholm, 24–25 September, 2010. The participants/contributors belong to the disciplines of Art history, Cultural studies, Literary and Media studies, and Law. The contributions discuss the complex relations between law, media and visual phenomena. The common theme of the essays consists in an examination of the scopic field and of regimes of visibility in phenomenological terms, arguing that law constitutes a cognitive and aesthetic field of normative world-making. Rather than merely inverting Shelley’s dictum that the “poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world”, the essays argue in different ways for the necessity to develop a legal aesthetics.
