A Logical Picture of Facts is a Thought (3) Tractatus '21-22'

1994
Paolozzi, Eduardo
In 'A Logical Picture of Facts is a Thought (3) Tractacus ’21-22’' Paolozzi returns to the motif of his earliest collages: the deconstructed and reconstructed head. It also marks a return to the subject of the Viennese philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. Paolozzi identified with Wittgenstein's feeling of being an outsider, as well as being intrigued by the idea of linking art and philosophy. The title refers to Tractacus Logico- Philosophicus which Wittgenstein wrote while serving in the Austrian army during the First World War.
