Becker to Sidney Finkelstein, Hans Belting to Larry Shiner, Alan Swingewood to Walter Benjamin, and E. P. Thompson to Raymond Williams.

5 meetings, 2 weeks apart, 8 people

Workshop advisor: Erdinç Kaygusuz 


We need an understanding that encompasses the full range of possibilities for human experience in interacting with the world. Thus, the traces of the aesthetic experience that refer to the formation of common feelings, actions and signification practices can be traced.

Where is the experience; completed or disappeared? Discussions clustered around these questions can also be a good point of view to consider art together with both vital and perceived experience. As a matter of fact, the relationship of art with the world and human life, as a form of experience that is in harmony with culture and meaning is knotted here.
