"Art and the Disappearing Body": Bret W. Davis with Brad Evans and Chantal Meza
The “State of Disappearance” series asks urgent questions about extreme violence, the normalization of human vanishing, state and ideological complicity, and memorialization, along with wider concerns about what it means to be human in the twenty-first century. Political philosopher Brad Evans and abstract painter Chantal Meza are joined by a series of guests to explore the states of disappearance into which life is continually thrown. In this opening event of the series, renowned philosopher Bret W. Davis speaks on the relationship between art and the bodies that are forcibly disappeared. The conversation explores the philosophical question of nothingness, what memorialisation in the face of human absence looks like, and what role art can play in recovering the human. This conversation is part of the ongoing State of Disappearance project: https://www.historiesofviolence.com/stateofdisappearance Bret W. Davis is Professor and T. J. Higgins, S.J.
