The Carl Schmitt Foundation will be sponsoring an ongoing critical dialogue with various artistic experts and critics. We will print here the text of the papers that these scholars present. While this dialogue will not take the form of an “active” or “live” dialogue, the hope is that the issues brought up by these papers will elucidate further topics for study.

The catalyst for these topics will be the writings and art of Carl Schmitt. From this singular beginning, we hope to understand better the universal and permanent truths of the arts and therefore of humanity. For the arts are truly unique to mankind.

Anyone interested in submitting a well written and thought provoking critique to this endeavor can contact the Foundation with an outline of the text. The Carl Schmitt Foundation reserves all rights to accept or reject any papers submitted.

Below is a list of past critiques by various artists and writers. We hope you enjoy them.
