2019W, scientific seminar (SEW), 2.0 semester hours, course number S03219

Description

The Art Historian Rosalind Krauss explores in her essay how the traditional form of a sculpture as monument developed into a „Sculpture in the expanded field“. We will explore examples in Land Art, Performance Art and Activism that emerged in the 1960s that widened the boundaries of sculpture and the Ecofeminism that articulated a critique on the exploitation of women and nature. We will discuss and challenge the relationship between sculpture and environment in the light of anthropocene and capitalocene today.

How much space does a sculpture occupy? Whose space is it? What does the material character of an artwork tells us about its observer?
