Description

Sculpture in the Endangered Field. Surfaces and Transitions

The Art Historian Rosalind Krauss analyzes in her essay the diverse transitions between the traditional appearance of a sculpture as a monument and a „Sculpture in the expanded field“. Taking her 1979 essay as our point of departure, we will explore artistic practices in Land Art, Installation, Sculpture, Performance Art and Activism by certain artists and discuss and challenge the relationship between sculpture and environment in the light of the anthropocene and the capitalocene today.

How much space does a sculpture occupy? Whose space is it? What does the material character of an artwork tell us about its environment on the one hand and its production process on the other hand? Departing from these analyses and interventions, the class will focus on political, theoretical and artistic perspectives in anti-colonialism, queer feminisms and the politics of care.
