InhalteThis module looks at the mediality, history, and architecture of the portfolio as a powerful tool of (re-)presentation and reflection in artistic practice. Simultaneously, it explores other modes of displaying and distributing in the field of contemporary art. Starting from a theoretical investigation, we discuss and apply strategies, techniques, tools in workshop-like environment to assemble a compelling dossier for different levels of artistic experience, aims and biographies. We will look at how to speak and how to argue about artworks by meeting guests such as curators, cultural players, designers, artists and gallerists.
