Failure: Understanding Art as Process, 1150–1750

This conference proposes to bring failure into focus as a crucial component of artistic production. Understanding failure as a generative force rather than the antagonist to success offers an opportunity for a paradigmatic shift away from the overpowering rhetoric of accomplishment and artistic progress which is still so predominant in art history –instead re-evaluating trial and error. This may lead, in turn, to a more nuanced understanding of art in its making, that is, as process, with an emphasis on the latter, rather than on the finished object.

Registration is free, but mandatory; attendees will receive a Zoom link. Places are limited, so be sure to register as soon as possible. The conference will be recorded.

Die Teilnahme ist kostenfrei.
