Philosophy meets art: event at Fo Kia Nou

Athens-based philosopher Marcos Breuer invites us to discover the philosophical dimensions underlying the work of art.

The arts have always been relevant for philosophers; indeed, there is a branch of philosophy entirely devoted to artistic phenomena: aesthetics or philosophy of art. Likewise, the various philosophical ideas and systems have been of interest to artists. In fact, many of them have understood their works as an exploration of the aesthetic dimensions of a given philosophical theory, to paraphrase J. L. Borges. Nevertheless, the relationship between philosophy and art is far from being idyllic. Plato, for example, wanted to expel the artists from his republic because they (supposedly) deceive and mislead us; in turn, many Romantics saw in rational thinking a threat to aesthetic creation.
But in any case philosophy and art offer us two different and complementary ways of approaching the many aspects of the world, both the natural and the social world. We relate to things through philosophical analysis and through aesthetic experience.
As a special event at Fo Kia Nou 24/7, the philosopher Marcos Breuer will discuss the specific features of a philosophical and of an artistic approach. On the occasion of the exhibition “A Picture of Us” by Sarah Ettlinger and Loula Levedi, he will focus on the body as a major subject of reflection by philosophers and artists alike.
