Phenomenology and Art
The fifth (and special) edition of the Summer School for Phenomenology and Phenomenological Philosophy will explore the complex network of relations existing between the phenomenological tradition and a large set of issues concerning the nature of art, art creation and fruition, art interpretation and evaluation, and the nature of aesthetic values in general. This exploration will be conducted both by commenting on the writings of the main figures of that tradition (from Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty, onward), and by analyzing specific works of art in light of phenomenological categories. The occasion for this encounter between phenomenology and art will be provided by the La Biennale di Venezia’s 57th International Art Exhibition.VIVA ARTE VIVA, curated by Christine Macel, and by “Biennale Sessions”, La Biennale’s special affiliation program for Institutes of Higher Learning. Seminars and debates will cover three days, while an entire day will be devoted to a visit to the Art Biennale, followed by a round table in a seminar space located within the premises of the exhibition. The seminars of the School will address different aspects of this broad theme. No previous background in phenomenology is required.
