vom Aufgang der Sonne – publication

publication now available online:

'vom Aufgang der Sonne' was created as a response to the 250th anniversary of Hegel’s birthday in 2020. The artist collective n.n.n. collective (Susanne Brendel, Jasmin Schädler, Julia Schäfer) used this opportunity to take a critical look at Hegel and his Philosophy of History. The publication focuses on perspectives that have been overwritten or made invisible by Hegel and his legacy.

A project by n.n.n. collective and InterAKT Initiative e.V. in cooperation with HuM-Collective.
Funded by Kulturamt der Stadt Stuttgart and Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden-Württemberg.
With kind support of LBBW-Stiftung and Kunstverein Wagenhalle.
