Bojana Kunst Book Presentation: Das Leben der Kunst. Transversale Linien der Sorge

Bojana Kunst's new book deals with the complex relationship between life and art and discusses this relationship from the angle of care. The author not only critically examines various backgrounds to contemporary debates on care, but furthermore lays an emphasis on its ambivalent character: care can be part and parcel of relations of violence as much as it can become the basis for a poetic-imaginative reorientation of social, ecological and micropolitical relationality.

This recording of the book presentation with Bojana Kunst and Stefan Nowotny took place at Depot in Vienna ( on 20 March 2024. The presentation of the German translation of the book took place in English, with parts of the following audience discussion also in German. It has been published by transversal texts as an audio episode as part of the Peripheral Visions project.
