PHILOSOPHER
the female wisdom

Statement
In “Philosophers”, I examine the loss of connection to nature in our modern, technically driven world. A longing for nature, as a fixed reference point and an intact romantic worldview in which man and nature are in harmony, is facing an accelerating demise in our fully mechanized/digitized age. Art’s role changes in a world suffused with generated images. It is imperative to reflect on what are often highly sensitively charged worlds of images, the ways they are represented. In these rapidly changing times, modern life has become far-removed from anything resembling authenticity or truth. The relationships between nature and technology, language and body, body and space, have changed significantly.



Luce Irigaray
Speculum of the Other Woman | 2013


The order of the day is to understand the world from the vantage point of abstraction and not to abstract from the world. In our post internet society, the way we regard communication and identity has been altered. Man is the only specie that can transmit and expand his knowledge from generation to generation; but such transmission requires a process of thought on the part of the individual. In a historical sense, Philosophy claimed to provide a rigorous method to search for the meaning of life, and it was a precious substitute for dogmatic religion. But in modern times, religion among the educated classes in Europe and North America has lost ground, and intellectuals are neglecting the basic human need to find answers. Philosophy has shrunk in reputation and stature.




Claude Adrien Helvétius

De l'esprit | 2013


In contemporary society, women are rarely found inhabiting a highly austere, analytical space, such as the one which philosophy involves. Slowly the opportunities are improving, but the role of women in philosophy is still vulnerable, as they seem to inhabit margins of contemporary philosophy and speculative thoughts.



Laura Maria Caterina Bassi
de immixto fluidis aere | 2013

The genre of philosophy that prevails literately arises from the need of our times. This is the age of the Internet in which we are constantly flooded by fragmented information. Each person with a computer is embarking on a quest for and fabrication of his or her identity. The web mimics human neurology, and it is fundamentally altering young people's brains. The web, for good or bad, is instantaneous. Philosophy belongs to a vanished age of much slower and rhetorically formal inquiry.




Harriet Taylor Mill

On Liberty | 2013


"By referring to the external visual similarities of historical and current philosophers and the characteristics of their work, a reference to the historical philosopher, which incorporates his life and work, is made. As a contemporary interpretation of traditional philosophic thinking, “Philosophers” takes advantage of the iconographic approach of current media discourse.



Helene von Druskowitz

The Holy Struggle| 2013

“Philosophers” as one oeuvre is itself an open system: it employs transformations, mirror images, doublings and replications to develop realist fictions that amaze and surprise the beholder and raise questions concerning functional contexts as well as ideas of value. It exposes the effects of individualism and technicality on modern man's position within his natural environment. “Philosophers” bring together different approaches in ideas and longings, which in their own way all aim to go beyond postmodern thinking. The concept of „philosophers“ is a quest for a new terminology and a new grammar of thinking about contemporary art and focus on a new meaning of vision and gender.


Susan Sontag

I, etcetera | 2013


Introduction
The relationship between man and nature and his position inside and to the nature applies since the beginning of intellectual history as constantly updated crucial question. Today nature, where it still exist in its original form, has become an alienated terrain. The yearning for nature as a fixed reference point and the wishful thinking of a romantic, harmonious and intact worldview, humans and nature in conformity, is facing an ever quickening countdown to our completely technological age.




Margaret Cavendish

A True Relation of my Birth, Breeding, and Life | 2013


Vaguely formulates, the longing after enjoying a romantic reversion, which is able to overcome the feeling of emptiness and un-relatedness. Slowing down, deceleration, is increasingly necessary; humanity’s immanence and interaction with nature requires a completely new re-negotiation. It is striking that in our contemporary media-led discourse on the relationship between man and nature, only politics and sciences addressed the issue. Philosophy seems to have played no role, though it was philosophers who helped shape this discourse at the outset.



Martha Craven Nussbaum

Cultivating Humanity | 2013

Philosophers" now brings classical positions of philosophy back into the discussion and tests their contemporary relevance. Myself, as the embodiment of the historical models, not only suggests that contemporary reply to the relationship between man and nature, but also the necessity of including explicitly feminine perspectives.




Benjamin Peirce | 60 x 40 cm | 2014

“Philosophers” refers, as a contemporary interpretation of traditional philosophic thinking, to the external visual similarities of historical thinkers and their characteristics. To demonstrate the striking under-representation of female philosophers, the few surviving images of the leading female philosophers, are represented by only one advocate: myself.


Judith Butler
Undoing Gender | 2013

“The recognition irritates only at first, then encourages reflection. It becomes obvious that one must probably identify with several items and persons to create for oneself a satisfying, the perceived gap filling answering the question about the relationship of nature.
