Abstract:

This impressive edited collection investigates the relationship between British Pop Art pioneer Eduardo Paolozzi and the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. At this time, when Paolozzi?s oeuvre is in the process of being rediscovered, his long-time fascination with Wittgenstein requires thorough exploration, as it discloses a deeper understanding of his artistic production, further helping to reassess the philosopher?s actual impact on visual arts and its theory in the second half of the 20th century. 0With 13 diverse and comprehensive chapters, this volume principally aims at discovering, retracing and critically pondering the influence of Wittgenstein?s philosophy and biography on the idea of art in Paolozzi, with a focus on his artistic production, thus discussing the interpretation that an artist may provide of philosophical thinking. Bringing together philosophers and art historians, this book gives an unprecedented insight into Wittgenstein?s philosophy as applied to contemporary art and shows how Paolozzi was an innovator in using Wittgenstein?s thought in his art.
