Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk

Description

“The idea becomes a machine that makes art” is one of the central statements by Sol LeWitt, with whom the artist shaped a new art direction in the 1960s. In Concept Art, the idea was central, the concrete execution faded into the background. In its radical reduction, this artistic approach became the ultimate provocation - and thus also politically effective.
Emerging from the visual arts, the new conception of art had important effects on the music scene, which will be explored in the concert “Nothing is real”.
In an introductory conversation with two of the most important representatives of interdisciplinary remix research, David Gunkel and Margie Broschke, the focus is on the relationship between old and new, original and plagiarism, and copying as a cultural practice.
