Marcus Steinweg on Duras the Philosopher



Known for his writing on aesthetics, abstraction, and art as well as his collaborations with artists, Marcus Steinweg focuses on a reframing of the late French author Marguerite Duras as a philosopher rather than a writer or filmmaker. This lecture closes artist-in-residence Haegue Yang’s interrogation of Duras’ multidisciplinary oeuvre and threads connections between the author as a philosophical figure and Yang’s work.
