Dialogue II: On Visual Art or How Does Art Think?

Kamini Vellodi, Éric Alliez, Ian Buchanan, Marc Ngui, Anne Sauvagnargues, Peter Stamer

This dialogue brings together philosophers and artists to address issues at the core of Deleuze’s ontology of art. It will be oriented around the question of art’s contemporary work as a critical production of thought.

Dialogue I: On Performance or Untimely Fabulation

Christoph Brunner, Arno Böhler, Susanne Valerie Granzer, Julien Bruneau, Erin Manning, Christel Stalpaert

But more importantly, there are personal and material connections produced by Bernhard Lang’s Belgian premiere of The Tables are Turne...
