(On generosity, giving, sharing and social exchange)

10th March – 21st May 2006

Curator: Katerina Gregos

„If there is a connection between generosity and social justice, and if generosity is not merely an individual virtue but openness fundamental to human existence, sociality and social formation, then it may turn out that although nothing currently anticipates the idea of generosity, there is nonetheless an urgent need to address the public about it”.
Dorothea Olkowski on Rosalyn Diprose?s book: Corporeal Generosity: On Giving with Nietsche, Merleau-Ponty and Levinas (Albany, SUNY Press, 2002)
