Mira Schendel’s Gesture: On Art in Vilém Flusser’s Thought, with ‘Mira Schendel’ by Flusser

2014

Abstract

In his theory of communication, philosopher and writer Vilém Flusser (1920–1991) referred to art often, yet unsystematically. This article proposes that Mira Schendel, with whom he had an extended dialogue in the 1960s, was a point of reference for him, substantially informing many aspects of his thinking about art. Also included is a new translation of an essay on Schendel by Flusser.
