For the 6th edition of The Ongoing Conversation Grigoris Rizakis will present a publication and has invited Philip Schuette to go into a discussion with him.

The artist writes:

In 1897, Leo Tolstoy wrote a book under the title “What is Art?”. Due to to censorship the book was first published outside Russia in English.
Throughout, Tolstoy exposes his main ideas on art, ideas that he had been working on for the 15 last years before its publication. Despite the serious attempt from a philosophical point of view, as Tolstoy elaborates on very traditional problems in Aesthetics such as what is beauty and “the beautiful”, is art created in order to cause mere pleasure? and the views of philosophers including Plato and Aristotle to Baumgarten and other contemporaries of his, the final product could be characterized rather problematic and poor as concerning its philosophical value.

However, Tolstoy manages to make a statement…..

Discussion of the artist with Philip Schuette will follow, on the relation of Art and Science.

The Ongoing Conversation II offers a series of fast-paced one-day exhibitions conceived as a platform to show and share the interest of ongoing artistic research.

In the seven short exhibitions, the seven graduating students of MAR will freeze the momentum of their artistic research process to create a decisive entry into the end phase of their explorations. Stringed together over the course of one month, these milestones create a combined itinerary. The exhibitions bring you past sites of contaminated mushrooms, a hot bedroom in Curacao, a reflection on religious power at the European Parliament, a playful ritual, an unfolding of emptiness, a reconstruction of a conceptual architecture from the past and axiological dilemma’s in art and commerce. 

This project is the outcome of a collaboration between 1646 and the Master Artistic Research, The Hague.
The Master Artistic Research is a master programme for artists, based at the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire, The Hague.
