Nudez by Giorgio Agamben

Nudez - Giorgio Agamben,  Miguel Serras Pereira

I first heard of Giorgio Agamben during an art criticism class. We were discussing the definition of contemporary art, and the essay in this book come up, which piqued my interest about it.

 

I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It's a collection of essays on varied topics, from nudity (which gives the book its title), to Kafka, to identification methods and their influence in people. All of them were very interesting and mentioned facts and thoughts that I hadn't heard of or considered before.

 

Highly recommended as a thought provoking book.
