07.11.2016 Reconsidering the Shape of Evidence: Visual Documents in and Beyond Contemporary Art.

Ausgabe #7

Sophie Berrebi discusses in her lecture the use of documents in the visual arts in the first decade of the 21rst century. She focusses on artists, who shed light on the potentials, mechanisms and traditions of analogue forms of documentary practices in contrast to the contemporary emphasis on the usage of digital media. In doing so they question the status of art works as well as of documents and the relationship of museums and archives. We present here the presentation manuscript of the lecture and add the notes taken by two members of the research training group. This most common kind of documentation of lectures in most scientific disciplines points out the processes of selection und accentuation in listening and recording.
