VERGIFTETE VERHÄLTNISSE
Gespräche zur Gegenwartskunst

[POISONED RELATIONS Talks on Contemporary Art]

May — September 2022

Art that aims at the present inevitably has to do with the sometimes rather poisoned relations of art, politics, and society. Against this background, the talks explore the early entanglements of documenta, but they also pose the question of how contemporary art positions itself in today's world of global conflict. What can and should art do in the face of pandemic and war?

Public discussion series in German language (unless otherwise indicated)

Organizer: documenta Institut and TRACES
