Talent, intuition, creativity

On the limits of digital technologies

Imagining and realizing novel ideas engages aspects of the mind, body and self that we barely control, says Edith Ackermann in interview. Learning, like the art of living itself, is about navigating uncertainties rather than controlling what we cannot predict. [ more ]

Art comes from labour






From 27 April to 29 May 2006, these 24 oil paintings by Josef Schützenhöfer are on display on the facade of Rembrandtstraße 31 in Vienna (the location of Eurozine and partner journal Wespennest) in the exhibition Kunst kommt von Arbeit [Art comes from labour]. For over ten years, Schützenhöfer has worked under this motto, producing big-format series concerned with industrial workers, the conditions they work under, and the products of their labour. The exhibition features sixteen portraits from his previous series, "Semperit" and "Steyr-Daimler-Puch", alongside eight portraits produced especially for this location, depicting people working in and around Rembrandtstraße.

The social is not abstract

Josef Schützenhöfer's "Social Painting" and the provocation of the figurative
Residual authoritarianism and social inequality are both a target and a spur in the paintings of Josef Schützenhöfer. Drawing on (art) history and contemporary imagery, they articulate an original realist aesthetic. [ more ]

Civil disobedience for an age of total surveillance
The case of Edward Snowden

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-04-18-scheuerman-en.html
Earlier civil disobedients hinted at our increasingly global condition. Snowden takes it as a given. But, writes William E. Scheuerman, in lieu of an independent global legal system in which Snowden could defend his legal claims, the Obama administration should treat him with clemency. [more]
