|Inhalte||This 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 upcoming modes of depiction and dispersion of the work in the field of contemporary art.
Starting from a theoretical investigation, we discuss and apply strategies, techniques, tools, giving indications to assemble a compelling dossier, for different levels of artistic experience, aims and biographies, by diving into a workshop-like environment. We will look at how to speak and how to argue about artworks by meeting several guests – curators, cultural players, designers, artists and gallerists.
Our gatherings will also be occasion to learn about important pieces of art history in connection to the subject of this unit, getting to know the work of some inspiring contemporary artists such as Seth Price, Hito Steyerl, Lutz Bacher, Wolfgang Tillmans, etc.
