Dichtung und Wahrheit (Brno Art Open)
Soft cover binding, 19 × 26,8, 170 pgs, 2018
The sixth edition of the festival Sculptures in the Streets–Brno Art Open , with the motto “Dichtung und Wahrheit” (“Poetry and Truth”) develop the theme of “visual art and its function in public space”.
Our contradictory approach to truth is one of the most visible paradoxes of today’s world. On the one hand, we insist that there is no room for subjectivity when searching for truth, and we reject anything other than presumably rational arguments. On the other hand, however, we have neither the strength nor the desire to verify the arguments, and easily accept instant solutions skilfully wrapped in quasi-objective language. We live in a post-factual period, so we do not seek the truth, but merely confirmation of our own prejudices.
