Faversham Stoa is a philosophy discussion group. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 7.30 to 9.30pm in the The Bull in Tanners Street. We cover a large range of topics. There's no charge for membership and everyone is welcome to drop in. Just bring your brain and some beer money!

Modern Art

Our March 2012 meeting is a discussion of modern art: abstract and conceptual, made and ready-made. Referring back to our January meeting, is it all 'bullshit' and a case of 'the emperor's new clothes', or is there some substantive value in this kind of art?

Robert Cambridge from Whitstable, who is an art enthusiast, will be provoking our conversation and using illustrations from the work of Pablo Picasso (women with eyes in the wrong place), Henry Moore (funny shaped stones with holes), Marcel Duchamp (the urinal), Tracey Emin (the unmade bed), Damian Hirst (the split cow) and Carl Andre (the pile of bricks). Come along and be prepared for your assumptions to be challenged!
