Professor Catherine M. Soussloff Discusses Foucault on Painting

In Foucault and Painting (University of Minnesota Press, 2017), Professor Catherine M. Soussloff discusses an area of Foucault’s development that has remained largely overlooked: his engagement with painting. Indeed Foucault, we learn, described himself as a painter. In a recent conversation with Professor Kirstin L. Ellsworth (Indiana University), Soussloff sheds light on this largely neglected aspect of the philosopher’s thought within the disciplines of art history and aesthetic theory.
