Art is an Absolute Play: Jan Patočka on Art and Literature

Thu 10. 12. 2020 18:00 The event takes place online

#GrowOurHumanity campaign is digging deeper with an evening dedicated to the Czech philosopher Jan Patočka and his thoughts on art, theatre, literature and criticism.

Jan Patočka, a student of Husserl at Leuven university, was a philosopher with major impact on Czech dissent scene. In his thinking, he remained dedicated to the value of responsibility - also while reflecting on art, a less known field of his work. His dedication cost him his life but remains a lasting inspiration for difficult times. We promise some food for thought of high quality for everyone.

"The most interesting thing about responsibility is that we carry it with us everywhere."
