Michel Serres + 1: #1 Catherine David

Summer Talks by the Spree

Serres + 1 #1: Catherine David

In addition to numerous publications on the theory of science - Michel Serres frequently writes texts on art, focusing particularly on the painters Vermeer, Turner and Carpaccio. In many works, he reconsiders relevant questions concerning the theory and practice of art: as a philosopher of relations, Serres goes beyond traditional knowledge systems and navigates undefined, interstitial spaces. Kicking off the second day, Catherine David will engage in a conversation with Michel Serres.


Catherine David is an art historian, art mediator, curator of exhibitions such as: Documenta X, and has headed the project "Représentations Contemporains Arabes" since 1998. In 2006, she curated the exhibition "Di / Visions. Culture and Politics of the Middle East” at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt where she also co-curated the Berlin Documentary Forum in June 2010.


An event by Haus der Kulturen der Welt and Merve Verlag in cooperation with the French Embassy and the Institut Français.
