Aktuelle Diskurse (gLV) 

In recent years the artworld has been engulfed by intense controversy, with major exhibitions dogged by accusations of racism and antisemitism. The present seminar proposes to look at these controversies as epiphenomena of ongoing boundary disputes over the question of autonomy vs heteronomy.

InhalteWhereas artistic autonomy is difficult, if not impossible to sustain, heteronomy is, to quote Andrew Wiener, extremely “difficult to negotiate because it radically impacts not just the form and content of art, but its definition, indeed its very ontology.” As affect theorist Lauren Berlant argues, the attachments that help reproduce what is most damaging in the world are at the same time those that hold the world together as a coherent representation. Giving up one’s attachments, however cruel or toxic, would mean giving up the world and one’s position in it.
Taking a closer look at how a global cultural war is playing out site-specifically, we will examine why contemporary art hasn’t been able to think through the contradictions between what it purports to do and what inadvertently does, and whether its means and modes of ideation are well suited for this task.
