Egon Schiele’s Place in Wittgenstein’s Vienna
A dialogue between Allan Janik and Carla Carmona
30 September 2016, Leopold Museum
I will begin with the remark that the Schiele-Wittgenstein connection is very important, not only for research on Schiele but also for research on Wittgenstein. I think that the connection makes Schiele appear as less of an expressionist and Wittgenstein’s philosophy seems to be closer to everyday human concerns, thus less intellectual, existential. I also think that the Schiele-Wittgenstein connection shows that much has to be done in both directions and would forge a closer link between philosophy and art.
