In order to capture the transformative power of doubt, one has to look beyond purely intellectual changes, since doubt is not merely a state of mind, but rather a complex experience with an aesthetic-emotional dimension, as stated by the conference organizers. The conference papers will deal, on the one hand, with the aesthetic quality and the frame of doubt. On the other hand, Zweifel. On the other hand, they will address the status of doubt in artistic practices and the idea of doubt as the core of an aethetics of existence.
The conference is being supported by the German Research Foundation. It is being in cooperation with the Institute for Cultural Inquiry (ICI Berlin).
