Abstract

What kind of knowledge is offered by art? This essay discusses Giacometti together with Beckett and Benjamin. Giacometti and Beckett are concerned with relations and their collapse: between persons, between memory and forgetting. Together, they prompt questions about the compatibility of space and time which, in Benjamin, show the difficulty of writing history without triumphalism.
