Investigative books / the book as investigation
OEI @ Moderna Museet (Stockholm)
Release of two new books in the series OEI undersökningar: Anteckningar om kojan, naturen och några andra saker (Notes sur la nature, la cabane et quelques autres choses), by the philosopher and writer Gilles A. Tiberghien, and Barndom och historia (Infancy and History: The Destruction of Experience), by the philosopher Giorgio Agamben.
Gilles A. Tiberghien (Paris) lectures on huts as privileged places for encounters between art and nature – a kind of laboratory for theoretical and practical experimentation. If houses are where we are rooted, huts are transitional spaces, temporary bricolages where we can withdraw from the world while being in it. Huts are like doors into nature, open places for thinking, writing and creating art. There are plenty of examples, from Descartes’ room with a stove, and Thoreau’s small house by Walden Pond, to Wittgenstein’s cabin in Norway, or Kawamata’s tree huts in France, Germany, China and the USA.
The poet and translator Gustav Sjöberg presents his Swedish translation of Agamben’s Infancy and History.
