A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW


Visiting Critics Vienna on Art and their Approach to Criticism

 

Friday, 16. November 2018, 7pm
KUNST HAUS WIEN
Untere Weißgerberstraße 13
1030 Vienna

 

In the framework of Verein K’s residency for four international art critics Visiting Critics Vienna 2018 a panel discussion will be held on the role of art criticism. 
How does art in Vienna look from the perspective of international art critics? How do they see the role of criticism today? Are there national differences in writing about art? In the final discussion of Verein K’s residency program Visiting Critics Vienna, we will address these and many more questions. 
 
During an intense one week program, the participants discover institutions and galleries and have personal encounters with artists, theorists, curators and other representatives of the Viennese art scene. Eventually they write about an exhibition, event or artist related to the contemporary art scene in Austrian in international or Austrian art magazines – but before that the four guests talk at the KUNST HAUS WIEN about their impressions from Vienna and their conception of criticism.
 
Participants:
Aleksei Borisionok (Belarus), Sean O’Toole (South Africa), Josie Thaddeus-Johns (UK)Daniel Udy (UK/Canada) 
 
Moderator: 
Klaus Speidel (Germany/Austria)
