The Culture Capital Exchange, in collaboration with the Philosophy Department of King’s College London, has developed a series of salons surrounding Philosophy and the Visual Arts, bringing complex philosophical notions in contact with the wider public sphere.
The second salon in the series presented Philosopher Sacha Golob in conversation with artist Jane Wildgoose. The invigorating discussion was held in the intimate Fernandez and Wells in Somerset House, and surrounded the conceptualisation and development of contemporary artistic practices. Sacha’s interests surround continental philosophy and the philosophy of art, while Jane’s work encompasses ideas of memory, narrative and imagination; these central themes became the focus of the stimulating conversation.
Contributors/Speakers: Dr. Sacha Golob, lecturer in Philosophy at King’s College London; Jane Wildgoose, Artist.
