Ist Eros der eben jetzt von mir beobachtete Planet?

Schmoll Eros Handel U1 20171215

The publication is entitled “Ist Eros der eben jetzt von mir beobachtete Planet?”–which translates as: “Is Eros the planet just observed by me?”–after a question Gottlob Frege asked Ludwig Wittgenstein, and marks the 100th anniversary of the “Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus” by addressing the relationship of perception, symbol, (language), form and “reality” based on the written correspondence between the two philosophers.

About the product

It brings together thirteen exceptional works of film, video, sculpture, drawing, photography, painting and print by young and emerging Austrian artists who conceptually explore the above analytical line of questioning in their own work. The focus is on the possibility of representing “reality,” as well as on questions of the “sense” and “meaning” of what is portrayed, and the resulting consequences or contradictions, not necessarily in an attempt to find an answer, but rather with attention firmly directed towards the complexity and topicality of the questions. In addition, Gottlob Frege’s letters will be shown in facsimile for the first time.
