The FWF funded project “Artist Philosophers. Philosophy as Arts-Based-Research“ and Tanzquartier Wien are joining forces to
investigate emerging interdisciplinary connections between philosophy and the arts.
Over the course of four days, more than
60 philosophers and artists will come together at Tanzquartier to explore whether the arts in connection with philosophy can
constitute a laboratory for the future. Nietzsche envisioned a fusion of the resistant forces of both disciplines as a “foreplay
of a philosophy of the future” which was to bring about a new, active concept of thinking: an active thinking of the untimely,
that is, “acting in a non-present fashion, therefore against time and even on time, in favour [...] of a time to come”. (Deleuze,
Nietzsche and Philosophy)
