We are saddened by the passing of Jean-Luc Nancy (July 26, 1940--August 23, 2021), one of the most important French philosophers of the second half of the twentieth century.

We are pleased to announce that several lectures from spring and summer 2021 are now available to view on Vimeo.
“IDSVA has shaped my awareness and thinking in a way I could not have imagined. Before IDSVA, I thought of art as the exclusive domain of practicing artists, or the stuff in galleries and museums; now I think of an all-encompassing aesthetic life that continues to inform me as a human being.”
