InhalteStarting from a theoretical investigation, on modes of distribution and dispersion in the field of art, we discuss and understand strategies, techniques, tools, giving indications to assemble a compelling dossier, for different levels of artistic experience, aims, biographies, by diving into a workshop-like environment. We will look at how to speak about and how to argue about the (art-)work.
To to better understand the portfolio and the discourse around it, this lab integrates several visitors: experienced art professionals such as curators and cultural actors, designers and gallerists. It furthermore provides an encounter with works by relevant contemporary artists.
