This image belongs to the ‘Philosophical Rooms’ that Van Kerckhoven devised as part of her ongoing Sex and Technology project. This particular ‘room’ is dedicated to the American philosopher Richard Rorty, a pragmatist who famously asserted that there is no real or objective truth, only ‘what your contemporaries let you get away with’.
