This is the launch of a six month multi-disciplinary visual arts project which delves into the philosophy and architectural legacy of the renowned Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein.


The event begins with a talk, Wittgenstein in Ireland, by Prof Maria Baghramian, Head of school of Philosophy at UCD. Followed by a short walk in local forest where Wittgenstein strolled, with tea, scones and the music of Austrian composers Gustav Mahler and Johannes Brahms performed by the Appasionata String Trio, afterwards at Kilpatrick House.

The thing now is to live in the world in which you are, not to think or dream about the world you would like to be in.
