Levinas: Ethics of Encounter presents the work of Raphael Lozano Hemmer, Lynn Hughes and Simon Laroche, Ingrid Bachmann, Freda Guttman, Monique Moumblow, Francois Lemieux, Lisa Vinebaum, Tom Haigh and Noemie da Silva in conjunction with the Centennial Conference on Levinas and Law.
It is not difficult to understand why a Law School would be host to a Centennial Conference for a philosopher driven by questions of justice, responsibility and ethical peace. But why art in the Law School Atrium? What connection between the art works installed in this space and the conference papers being delivered elsewhere on campus? For Levinas the aesthetic and art are intimately linked to the practice of ethics and justice - and it is significant that for Levinas these are not just concepts to be thought through but responsibilities translated into practice.
