Marcellvs L. at n.b.K. | Kunst und Philosophie (06/24/2011)
Apparently, there is a friendship between art and philosophy. As with every friendship, articulating a certain difference is part of it. Art and philosophy are not the same. But the difference already passes through the concept of art and philosophy itself. Perhaps art and philosophy are connected by the fact that art generates a singular concept of art, and philosophy its own conception of philosophy. The exhibition invites artists to define for themselves a relation to philosophy: from the perspective and with the means of artistic articulation.
