The Moscow Conference on Philosophy,
Politics and Art
Thinking Worlds brings together contributions from a two-stage symposium organized in conjunction with the second Moscow Biennial of Contemporary Art. The thirteen essays included here look at theoretical issues within the field of contemporary art. What is the role of the “event” in this culture? Are artistic interventions politically significant? What is the current status of philosophy and aesthetic theory? And in this era of global political change and market forces in which art is widely considered to be a part of the society of spectacle, what is the actual status of art and its critical discourses? Contributors include Giorgio Agamben, Daniel Birnbaum and Molly Nesbit.
