Abstract or Description

This is an essay included in the publication accompanying the project Dinge und Dialoge (Things and Dialogues), an artistic and a philosophical venture taking the form of two interrelated but differently materialized gatherings of artworks by Daniel Heinrich, Kathi Hofer, Barbara Kapusta, Ulrike Köppinger, Katrin Mayer, Ulrike Müller, Rocco Pagel and Jenni Tischer. One of them is the publication to which this is a contribution, and the other was an exhibition held during the winter months of 2015-16 at Scriptings, the Berlin-based showroom and publishing house set up by Achim Lengerer. The essay considers three models for thinking the exhibition's 'Things and Dialogues' relationship non-dualistically: 'Model One: Structures of Intercorporeality and Intentionality' (drawing on Merleau-Pontean phenomenology and referencing the work of Kaja Silverman on 'the language of things'); 'Model Two: Hilary Lawson’s Openness and Closure' (drawing on Lawson's 2001 book Closure: A Story of Everything); 'Model Three: “Sacred Conversations”' (drawing on insights from the early Renaissance painterly tradition of the sacra conversazioni - an issue I discuss at length in the 4th chapter of my 2014 book Showing Off! A Philosophy of Image).
