Acts of Painting
Symposium, Book Presentation, Film Screening
The symposium focusses on the phenomenon of painterly practices that foreground the artistic process. How do contemporary paintings visualize this process? Why do they sometimes even stage their own making? What are the historical and contemporary roots of this reflective practice? And what do we look for, as viewers, when we try to retrace the process in painting?
