van ez a kiallitas es nem tudok elmenni
Alongside the exhibition panels, 12 original screen prints by Eduardo Paolozzi influenced by Wittgenstein, will be on display. Visitors will be provided with catalogues and a flipbook based on Wittgenstein’s own photographs as well as a drawing. The exhibition will close on Friday 29th June with a presentation by Dr Michael Nedo, the director of the Wittgenstein Archive Cambridge.
Wittgenstein had a keen interest in photography. He not only composed a photo album depicting his life, but also experimented with the medium . Pictures, images and photography all feature in his works. One of the pictures shown in the exhibition is a construct, a composite from individual images of his three sisters and himself to illustrate his idea of “Familienähnlichkeit”, his concept of family resemblance. The exhibition consists of photographs taken by Wittgenstein, pictures from his photo album, as well as photographs taken by friends and relatives. They are accompanied by quotations from Wittgenstein’s writings and from his correspondence with his Cambridge friends, colleagues and family.
