16.12.2006, at 6 p.m.
 
 
At the turn of the 60s and 70s many artists, especially from conceptual circles referred to Wittgenstein: Robert Rauschenberg, Jochen Gerz, Victor Burgin, Garry Hill, Jarosław Kozłowski, Laszló Lakner, etc. The lecture starts with a general description of Wittgenstein’s outstanding popularity and then it concentrates on works of three artists: herman de vries, Joseph Kosuth and Bruce Nauman – who took one or several sentences from the philosopher’s writings and used them as art’s material. In conclusion, the lecture formulates some thesis on the diversified nature of Wittgenstein, which emerges from those works.
