EGON SCHIELE in WITTGENSTEIN’S VIENNA

30. September 2016, Leopold Museum

Egon Schiele presented against the background of ethical and formal affinities that Toulmin and Janik identified as Wittgenstein’s Vienna. In particular, Schiele’s art will be read in the light of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s philosophy and Adolf Loos’ architecture. It will be shown how Wittgenstein’s notion of use applies to Schiele’s depiction of chairs in his oeuvre, and the ethical implications that are derived from such an application.
