Lecture "I walk the line: with-drawing into contemporaneity“
This lecture is based on the following question: „How does drawing contribute to a contemporary cultural scene dominated by the aesthetics of commercial mass media rather than by museum aesthetics?“ I attempt to answer this from a personal standpoint, using keywords such as Nomadic Forum and Palance from my book ‘Unfolding the Cards’ (Vilnius, 2013). More about the lecture.
Moderator prof. Henrik B. Andersen.
