In this lecture Kristina Schrei analyzes the work of Andrea Fraser and Cosima von Bonin, artists who in their artistic practice in the 1980s and 1990s, defined art as a critical discourse. Both artists were associated with intellectual circles that challenged existing notions and expanded the field of art. What unites their different artistic strategies and work is their critical attitude towards the art world and their own participation in it. During the curatorial workshop Kristina Schrei will introduce theoretical and practical aspects of exhibition making. She will discuss how to create press releases, choose locations and where to look for inspiration and exhibition topics.
