Who does art have meaning for, and why? Art is a unique tool to work the question about who we are, and therefore also what a good life can be. In this book Kjetil Røed looks at ten different virtues - attention, judgement, withdrawal, curiosity, acknowledgement, hope, ambivalence, craftsmanship, love and solidarity - through works of art, with the ambition to exercise values using art as a platform. The result is a draft for "working with virtues", in this trying to show how it is to work with values. How the question about how we should live thinking about art also can be a way to understand ourselves - to partake in the wish to see a clearer connection, direction and whole - in our own life.
