This field is dedicated in tracking down photography projects, which revolve around a philosopher or have been inspired by his life, an aspect of her work or a specific concept.

This on-line platform was created in order to build a community of artists who are interested in philosophy as a way of critical thinking, as a practice of discerning ideas and as a springboard for exploring creativity.
Respectively, it is targeted to philosophers and researchers, who are interested in collaborating with artists, learning from their practice, exchanging ideas and making projects together.

The Lab is designed to operate on different levels.

Connections made by me

Respectively it is targeted to philosophers and researchers, who are interested in conversing with artists, sharing knowledge and also learning from their artistic practice.It is a lab where visual artists mostly work with philosophers and not exclusively on philosophy. In that respect philosophical texts and wider topics may be in our areas of interest more as a means to explore seeing and thinking rather than the end on which we focus to extract information. It is lab which also aims at creating through experimentation and transfigurations of artefacts material which may raise philosophical questions and discussion.
