Samuel IJsseling / Ann van Sevenant

Samuel IJsseling is professor of contemporary philosophy at the University of Leuven.He is known as the living connection between the Dutch language area and the French Philosophers. Samuel IJsseling deals with the different ideas of and definities behind the 'Mimesis; the qualifications of the idea, the copy, the being and the seeming. is a copy adding to, or degrading an object? Is the copy a weak reproduction of the original idea of the thing?

Ann Van Sevenant is a writer and wrote in collaboration with Samuel IJsseling the book 'What would the world be without philosophy?' She also chaired the jury of the Prix de Rome in 2006. By linking the works in the show to the talk of Samuel IJsseling she puts theory to practice.
