Text

These texts are an attempt at “Arendtian thinking” – alternately what might be called “Critical Aesthetics” – within the combined fields of art, theory and politics. The authorial intention here, following Hannah Arendt, is to “undo, unfreeze, as it were, what language, the medium of thinking has frozen into thought (concepts, sentences, definitions, doctrines).” In so doing, all essays return to the collective memory of a given historical event as a springboard for contemporary commentary.
