The title of the Norwegian publication is “Samtaler fra Memorosa” and consists of thirteen philosophical dialogues between Korsnes and Odd Nerdrum.
Carl Korsnes and Öde Nerdrum (Odd’s son) will both speek at the event.
The philosopher Einar Duenger Bøhn, who wrote a foreword to Odd Nerdrum’s recent painting book published by Fineart Gallery, says the following about Sivilisasjonen’s first book:
Korsnes presents a collection of short and beautiful conversations with Nerdrum, which calls for hope that beauty can actually save the world.Einar Duenger Bøhn
The poet and model for Odd Nerdrum’s painting Transfiguration wrote with pathos:
The dialogues are a tribute to taking pride in one’s craftsmanship. To the intoxication of beauty. To the nobility of creation. Glittering with blink shot anecdotes. Reading through it arouse both the urge to create and the urge to live. Viva Nerdrum. Viva Korsnes.Bertrand Besigye
