In this issue of Kunstlicht, the reader is invited to investigate how zero has captured the imagination of scientists and philosophers alike. This issue of Kunstlicht compliments the exhibition 0 Starting from Zero, which features the artworks of Jennifer Tee, Jan Robert Leegte, Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand and Nicky Assmann, who visualise various aspects of the number zero. The contributions in this issue philosophically expand on the concept of sūnya and zero even further, whilst simultaneously interpreting this concept as a void and /or a fullness.
The contributors to this issue delve into the complexity of zero from several perspectives, enquiring about social structures, digital constructs, systems of perceptions, and the fields of contemplation and observation. The reader is thus encouraged to approach the concept of zero as a liminal space that overcomes the boundaries between art, philosophy, and science, opening to interdisciplinary analysis.
Please join us for an afternoon in the VU Art Science Gallery, amidst the exhibition that inspired it all. This launch is hosted by the guest editor of this issue, Maria Chiara Miccoli, and Kunstlicht’s editors-in-chief, Joyce Poot and Anna Sejbæk Torp-Pedersen.
