Schlagwort: political theory

„We have a Situa­tion“. From Hegel’s Philo­sophy of Situa­tion to Contem­porary Poli­tical Art

The word «situation» reminds of US-TV-series, French existentialism and German bureaucrats. It is hardly known though that Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel devised already in 1817 a theory of the “situation” that has remained important up to this day. His concept allows us to rethink contemporary art as well as political action and resistance.
