Love, Art and Women
The philosopher Katarina Majerhold develops an
interdisciplinary philosophical concept of love and joy. Her activity and
research draw from various fields of philosophy, art, andragogy and medicine,
and in particular focus on the philosophy of emotions, especially philosophy of
love, joy and happiness, as well as on ethics and aesthetics.
The lecture Love, Art and Women is focused on the author’s notion of the meaning of education of love to oneself and the essence of art, which is reflected in a triple-crossing of the artwork, artists and viewers in art. The art in which each of the three elements holds a special place and role allows for rediscovering and re-possessing the notion of love. Therefore, an artist cannot truly create unless she loves what she is doing; the viewers cannot truly admire and enjoy art unless they like it, and unless they like what they observe or listen to; in the primary genuine sense, the artist has to love herself. Finally, getting to know and loving oneself is a key to a happy, sympathetic and good life. (Alja Stvarnik)
