with or on paper? future prospects for a traditional genre
Art Fair, Munich (DE)
In the most central located Alte Bayerische Staatsbank 39 international galleries presented their most significant artistic positions of contemporary and modern art with focus on drawings and the medium of paper: drawings, collages, paper cuttings, photography, art books and objects were shown. I was invited by reflektor m and Paper Positions Munich to organize a discussion about a subject related to the art fair as part of the their programme for this edition. I decided to talk about the future of paper as a traditional genre, focusing on the differences between works on paper and works made with paper. Why is it relevant to focus an art fair on this specific medium? Which possibilities and limitations does this medium have? Is there still place for experimentation?
with Heinrich Carstens, Shirin Damerji and Stephanie Humbert.
