23 May 2023, 17:00 THREE ECOLOGIES – TANTRIC PHILOSOPHIES: Böhler & Granzer: Félix Guattari; Nikolaus Gansterer: Translecture Live Performance In the face of environmental destruction and species extinction, the French philosopher and psychoanalyst Félix Guattari demanded in his seminal writing The Three Ecologies (1989) that an ecological revolution must take place on three levels simultaneously: It must transform man's relationship to the environment and social space, but it must also call for a mental revolution of consciousness and thus develop aesthetic resistance to capitalism and ecocide. The Philosophical Institute of the University of Vienna will hold five lecture units open to the public in the Rote Bar in the lecture series on Three Ecologies in cooperation with the Volkstheater Wien. In these 5 units, philosopher Arno Böhler together with artists Nikolaus Gansterer, Claudia Bosse, Brigitte Wilfing, Susanne Valerie Granzer and media philosopher Shomo Choudhury will analyse artistic practices that are on their way to ecosophies and that defend themselves against the dilution of the term "ecology". On the 23rd of May Böhler & Granzer will introduce into tantric philosophies while Nikolaus Gansterer will do a simultaneous live drawing translecture performance. Admission is free.
