Goodbye Wittgenstein is an international exchange programme between artists and academics from Linz, Austria and artists selected by A3 Project Space in partnership with Birmingham Open Media, UK.

Participants in the programme take the ‘affair’ between the Austrian born philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein and his friend from Birmingham, David Hume Pinsent as a starting point for a series of projects that will happen in Linz and Birmingham during 2016. The projects respond to Wittengstein’s seminal text ‘Notes in Logic’ which was dictated by Wittgenstein in 1913 during a visit to see David in Birmingham. ‘Notes in Logic’ is notably the predecessor of what is considered to be one of the most important philosophical texts of the 20th Century, ‘Tractatus Logico Philosophicus’.
