Colloquium: Wittgenstein, Art and Architecture

From October 12-14 at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, an international colloquium under the auspices of the Institut de recherche en histoire de l’architecture (IRHA) presents recent research on the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein (18891951) in relation to art and architecture. Featuring 22 speakers from Austria, France, the Netherlands, the United States, Israel, and Canada, the colloquium examines Wittgenstein’s remarks on aesthetics and culture, his intimate link to the practice of the arts, architecture, and music, as well as his approach to the problems incurred by limits and definitions. Participation in the three-day event costs $40, or $25 for students. For information and registration, please visit
