Philosophy On Stage

Philosophy on Stage is a festival format at the edge of philosophy and arts.A main interest of of this format to do philosophy is to elaborate this precarious status of matter within the performance of an act to show that matter is not only a necessary condition to actually fulfill an act, but plays a significant role in determining the semantic meaning of it.Slogan of the last festival Philosophy On Stage #3 at House Wittgenstein in Vienna (sponsored by the Austrian Science Funds FWF TRP 12-G21): Have you ever met an objective, apathetic, selfless, untouchable, context-free body? The body that the sciences are obviously still seeking when they put forward their theories of bodies (at all) in order to put a concept of it in the place of the body itself.Project Website: of the Project:Arno Böhler (Vienna)See More
