16.4 On Philosophy & Participation



Issue editors: Laura Cull & Karoline Gritzner

SKU: 978-0-415-556859 Category:


On Philosophy & Participation aims to instigate reflection and debate on the relationship between performance and philosophy from the perspective of the contested concept of ‘participation’. Through a combination of contributions from artists – such as Felix Barrett of Punchdrunk and Lone Twin – and scholars, the issue examines ways in which modes of participatory performance engage philosophical concepts and, vice versa, how various philosophical approaches to the theme of participation have engaged art and performance. Individual contributions, for example, foreground the shared concern with participation as a means to investigate the points of dialogue and dissonance between Merleau-Ponty and Felix Ruckert; Jean-Luc Nancy and Rimini Protokoll; Deleuze and Grotowski; Rancière and Boal; Adorno and Group Material, and much more.
