A Tale of Two Huts

    'I first learned about this void sometime in the mid-2000s, when I came across a book titled, appositely, There Where You Are Not, a collaborative venture involving the Scottish artist-cum-poet Alec Finlay, the photographer Guy Moreton, and Michael Nedo, the long-time director of the Wittgenstein archive in Cambridge. Moreton’s photograph of the hut’s stone base amidst Norway’s lush mid-summer greenery perfectly captures the power of the lingering myth of the ever-searching, never-finding Viennese philosopher. Not only did it seem logical that the hut had long been gone, it also seemed just: the house that logic built, gone up in smoke.'

    Dieter Roelstraete is the curator at the Neubauer Collegium of Culture and Society, University of Chicago.
