Art has a way of raising questions. Since 2009 the Guggenheim Forum has pondered how themes from art affect life outside the museums walls: What is the role of spirituality in contemporary life? What is reality in the virtual era? And whats in a name? By bringing together writers, scientists, artists, and other experts from diverse fields, the Guggenheim Forum examines complex topics from all points of view, stimulating a lively dialogue among panelists. This volume gathers nine conversations from the Forums first four years. Participants include NPRs Krista Tippet, designer Ellen Lupton, artist Martha Rosler, author Douglas Hofstadter, and novelist Francisco Goldman.
