There is clearly a friendship between art and philosophy. Like with any friendship, the articulation of a certain difference between the two parties is an important part. Art and philosophy are not one and the same thing. However, the difference already fades in the conceptualisation of art and of philosophy. Perhaps what connects art and philosophy is that art generates a singular concept of art, and philosophy its own concept of philosophy. This publication accompanies the exhibition of the same name curated by Marcus Steinweg at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein.
