Abstract

After the coup d’état in Bolivia, in November 2019, a presidential decree was passed that potentially criminalized journalists, bloggers, and artists by holding that to the extent their work could be characterized as confusing public opinion it would be considered to constitute a danger to public health. The present text “A Debt to Beauty” offers a brief analysis of the historical relationship between silence and beauty, as well as the ethical dimension of the act of contemplating beauty in a museum—the debt one incurs, as it were, to beauty.
