TitelPleasure of Doubt in Art, Aesthetics, and Everyday Life
BeschreibungThe International Research Training Group "InterArt", in cooperation with the Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry (ICI), will host an international conference on "The Pleasure of Doubt in Art, Aesthetics, and Everyday Life" from June 19 to June 21.

Doubt pervades our daily life, both emotionally and cognitively. And yet, modern philosophy and the humanities tend to trivialize it. They conceive doubt in purely negative terms, as a mere nuisance in the pursuit of knowledge. But the modern arts, and also a small number of philosophers, paint a much more nuanced picture: They meet doubt with curiosity and attention; they embrace it as a transformative power; they provoke it at will and even cultivate it in ordinary life. The international conference "The Pleasure of Doubt in Arts, Aesthetics and Everyday Life" explores this alternative route to doubt, skepticism and scruples. It starts from the assumption that “living doubt” is not just a mental state of disbelief, but a conflictual experiential process. Doubt implicates the body as well as the senses; it stimulates just as much as it irritates; it discloses as well as it obscures.

Renowned representatives from anthropology to philosophy are invited to discuss how doubt shapes our lives, and how the experience of doubt is, or even ought, to be dealt with.
