Ontologizing the public realm: Arendt and the political
2012 (English)In: Placing art in the public realm / [ed] Håkan Nilsson, Huddinge: Södertörns högskola , 2012, 125-136 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
To Hannah Arendt, the public sphere has ontological implications; appearances are produced under conditions of plurality. For that reason, her philosophical work has implications for our reflections on the function of art in public space. What appears and why? What is refrained from appearing? How does intimate space interact with public space? The article looks at these questions and discusses the close relation between political agebcy and art.
