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.

The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition
Kunst und Philosophie.

The publication can be purchased at local bookshops, via the website of Buchhandlung Walther König, and at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. Members of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein can buy the book at n.b.k. for the special price of 15.00 Euro.
