Talks on contemporary art at the Teaching and Research Center at Lutherplatz in Kassel. Tuesdays from May to September, 6-8 p.m.
Art that aims at the present is inevitably involved in the sometimes rather contaminated relationships between art, politics, and society. In this context, 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. How can and should art act in the face of the pandemic and war?
