Description

This lecture will present artworks from the 1950s to the present, setting off with a discussion of which criteria are useful to characterize "contemporary art" and how this periodization resonates with globalization. Artworks will be discussed along the following aspects relevant today: materiality, conceptualism, intermediality, transculturality and globalization, artist and their audiences, body politics, art and ecology, social and ethical turns in art and art criticism. Preliminary list of session topics:

I Introduction: When and where is art contemporary? Art after 1945

II Art as object and event: intentionality / automatism / chance

III The life of things: objects, consumption, theater

IV Participation: audiences as art’s material

V Materiality / immateriality / digitality

VI Body images, gender politics, sexuality

VII Institutional critique

VIII Painting and ...

IX Architecture, space/site, ecology, infrastructure

X Research, information, appropriation

XI Art and activism, the social turn, the ethical turn

 

The lecture will be held online.
