Description

What is an edition, anyway? A question to which many follow-up questions, but also answers, will be formulated in the process of the course. 

In doing so, our goal is to explore the formal, conceptual, and sociopolitical possibilities in contemporary discourse inscribed in these works of art that deliberately renounce uniqueness and exclusivity.

By examining artistic positions from the 1950s to the present, we will explore the contextual, economic, and social dimensions of these works. One focus will be on artists whose practice is characterized by conceptual and sculptural approaches. 

In exchange with workshops and in the course of exhibition visits, we will get to know the media and production processes that make it possible for a work of art to exist more than once and we will ask ourselves pragmatic and practice-oriented questions in dealing with this form of art in terms of production, exhibition, storage and archiving. 

We will not restrict ourselves to limited, numbered and signed objects, but will also deal with ephemera such as postcards, invitation cards and posters and examine their artistic and activist aspects.

As a follow-up to the course, a class will be held in SS 2024 in which the participants will design and produce their own edition. These will be shown in the course of a collective exhibition at the end of the summer semester.
