Adorno
The Possibility of the Impossible (Vol. I and II set!)

 

Set of both long out-of-print volumes!

VOL. I
Edited by Michael Hirsch, Vanessa Joan Müller, Nicolaus Schafhausen
Texts by Norbert Bolz, Peter Bürger, Alex Demirovic, Diedrich Diederichsen, Alexander García Düttmann, Michael Hirsch, Christoph Menke, Willem van Reijen, Martin Seel

The first volume of Adorno. The Possibility of the Impossible comprises theoretical essays which investigate the relevance of Adorno’s critical theory for the present. The tight connection between individual observations in aesthetics and cultural criticism, on the one hand, and the large speculations of social theory and the history of philosophy, on the other, that is found in Adorno’s own work is taken as a point of departure in many passages. The difference – disparity, even – in the varied attitudes toward the content of Adorno’s theory is evident. Seen from the perspective of the present, this multiple rereading is directed at fragments of a thought that has preserved its radicality even when abstracted from its immediate historical context. Both publications – Adorno. The Impossibility of the Impossible Vol. I and Vol. II – accompany an exhibition at the Frankfurter Kunstverein on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Theodor W. Adorno.

Volume II documents the exhibition which looks at the connection between contemporary art and Adorno’s writings, with the visual arts becoming a central platform for comparison to Adorno’s main subjects.
