Arte Povera and Its Aftermath

Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt

Lecture followed by a podium discussion part of the exhibition 'Arte Essenziale'

sintesi del comunicato stampa

What is the relationship between contemporary artistic exploration of sculpture and the artistic styles of the past? Does a comparison with Arte Povera prove fruitful in interpreting contemporary sculpture? What are the subjects that today's sculptors address? These are the questions that the presentation will delve into as part of the exhibition "Arte Essenziale". Still today, many young artists are interested in the question of how artistic processes can be made visible through manipulating and presenting simple material, and how, in so doing, contemplation about the nature of the world can be kindled. What is central to them here is how the nature of material used in art can be accented, rather than reducing it to a means to an end in the creation of artistic work. These are the artistic positions that can be encountered in the exhibition "Arte Essentiale"; they will serve as the basis for the podium discussion. With Dr. Nike Batzner (Art historian), Gianni Caravaggio (Artist), Federico Ferrari (Philosopher and Art critic); moderation: Lilian Engelmann (Curator). From 7pm, admission euro 4.
