Highlights


Breaking the spell. Contemporary Realism under Discussion (Mimesis Internationals, 2015)
  ISBN: 978-88-5752-659-1
Website
It seems that the time has come for philosophy to break the spell of correlationism. But how? The present book gathers essays by philosophers and younger scholars sharing an interest in the recent speculative turn and contemporary forms of realism. They discuss possible strategies to access a subject-independent reality, proposing original insights and alternative solutions. The contributors include Erik Bordeleau, Gabriel Catren, Fabio Gironi, Paul Ennis, Liam Sprod, Luca Taddio, Sjoerd Van Tuinen & Matthijs Kouw, Ben Woodard, Andrea Zhok. The book also features interviews with Lee Braver, Maurizio Ferraris, Tristan Garcia and Graham Harman.

INAUGURAZIONE. Wang Guangyi. Dall’estetica della guerra fredda alla cosa in sé
Torino, 9 giugno

Sala Blu del Palazzo del Rettorato, Università di Torino, Via Verdi 8, ore 18,30
Mostra a cura di Tiziana Andina e Demetrio Paparoni
Dal 9-12 giugno 2015
In concomitanza con il numero speciale della Rivista di esteticà dedicato a Wang Guangyi, l’Università degli Studi di Torino e il LabOnt propongono una mostra dedicata al grande artista cinese. Wang Guangyi è uno dei protagonisti del nuovo corso intrapreso dall’arte cinese che, a partire dalla seconda metà degli anni Ottanta, si è progressivamente allontanata dal realismo maoista per abbracciare i linguaggi più liberi e complessi della modernità. Già allora, insieme ad altri artisti con cui faceva gruppo, indirizzò la propria ricerca verso una rivisitazione della storia dell’arte occidentale. Nello sviluppare questa scelta, influenzata dalla lettura della Storia dell’Arte di Ernst Gombrich, appena tradotta in cinese, Wang Guangyi ritenne necessario l’approfondimento, in prospettiva artistica, dei principali orientamenti filosofici che avevano caratterizzato il pensiero occidentale. Da qui il suo interesse per la tradizione platonica, il pensiero cristiano da Agostino a Tommaso, il criticismo kantiano, l’estetica di Hegel, il pensiero di Nietzsche e l’ermeneutica, mediati attraverso le tradizioni taoista, marxista e maoista.
Con il sostegno della galleria In Arco di Torino.

This conference will explore law’s complex relations with culture, politics and capital. It will investigate law as an accomplice, as well as law’s role in shaping (and resisting) problematic moral, political and material positions.
