Dora García (ed.) On Reconciliation / Über Versöhnung

Dora García (ed.) On Reconciliation / Über Versöhnung

Professor of Contemporary Art, Dora García’s new publication has been launched this summer. It confronts the incredibly timely problem of how to deal with authors, artists, thinkers whose personal politics turn our to be hateful or abusive through a critical engagement with the difficult legacy of Martin Heidegger.

The centerpiece of García’s bilingual publication On Reconciliation / Über Versöhnung is thus a selection of private letters exchanged between Hannah Arendt and Heidegger between 1925 to 1975. Heidegger has been known as a life-long supporter of Anti-Semitic ideas; Arendt is knows for coining her notion of ”reconciliation” as neither forgiveness nor revenge. In the book, the correspondence becomes a point of departure for a series of essays and conversations aiming to encourage a public debate on a challenging subject: the question of ethics and artistic production.

The publication On Reconciliation / Über Versöhnung is partly financed by KUF grant and published by K. Verlag, Berlin. The launch of the book was held at the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid in June 2018.
