Publication Date 2006
Description Six experts from different fields introduce the reader to the themes of the ARS 06 exhibition. Two psychoanalysts, an art historian and researchers of philosophy of law, criminal law and politics examine how art meets ambivalence and the reality based on duality.   ARS 06 raises questions about the meaning of art in our time. The exhibition book transports the reader to the worlds of ARS 06: the worlds of good and evil, and joy and sorrow dissolving in the boundaries of opposites. In their articles, the writers examine the works displayed in the exhibition and seek new interpretations. At the same time, great narratives get retold. Contributors to the exhibition book ARS 06 – Sense of the Real are Ari Hirvonen, LL.D, Senior Lecturer of Philosophy of Law, University of Helsinki, Bracha L. Ettinger, PhD, artist, psychoanalyst and theoretician, Mika Ojakangas, DScS, Senior Lecturer, Sami Santanen, researcher of aesthetics, Pirkko Siltala, psychoanalyst and Riikka Stewen, PhD, art historian. The artists in the exhibition are introduced in the articles providing an in-depth look at the works and their themes.
