Vlad Ionescu studied philosophy and art theory at the Institute of Philosophy, KU Leuven. In 2012 he defended his PhD thesis on the aesthetics and epistemological grounds of the modern science of art as it appears in the work of Aloïs Riegl, Heinrich Wölfflin and Wilhelm Worringer. Besides publishing on Deleuze’s interpretation of these authors (in Deleuze Studies) he has published on the aesthetics of Jean-François Lyotard (Esthetica, Cultural Politics). Finally he has co-translated and co-edited the writings of Lyotard on contemporary art and artists in a series of volumes published by Leuven University Press (2009-2013).
