Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Covering the dimensions Philosophy & Science and Subjectivity & Learning this project is an investigation of and reflection upon Gilles Deleuze’s book Francis Bacon: The Logic of Sensation. Combining the words of Deleuze with the paintings of Bacon, we aim at showing how philosophy and art, to Deleuze, can intermingle and generate new possibilites for thought. As such, the project is our interpretation of Deleuze’s interpretation of Bacon’s art. In particular, we analyse how concepts such as Figure, Becoming, Event, Sensation and the Body without Organs relate to the paintings of Francis Bacon. Conclusively, we provide an answer to why Deleuze have chosen exactly Bacon’s art as the lens through which Deleuze’s philosophical ideas are rendered visible.
